10 Blogs for Job Search, Personal Branding and Career Help

by Meg Guiseppi on May 6, 2013

Blogs for Job Search and Career

Prompted by the theme for this month’s Career Development Carnival, a showcase of the best blog posts from career experts, I’ve compiled a short list of excellent blogs and websites for job seekers and careerists.

By no means the only ones I read regularly – and not necessarily my top 10 favorites – the following sites are ones I come back to frequently and always find value in reading. I hope you do, too.

I often tweet these blogs, and they also inspire many of the blog posts I write.

There are actually 12 in my list. Two of my favorite writers run two sites.

Not only focused on job search, careers and personal branding, the sites I’ve chosen also speak to marketing, social media, leadership, technology and personal development.

In no particular order, other than starting with the blogs/sites of a few colleagues of mine, here’s my list:

1.  Susan P. Joyce’s Job-Hunt.org and Work Coach Cafe

2.  Hannah Morgan’s Career Sherpa

3.  Jason Alba’s I’m On LinkedIn – Now What??? and JibberJobber Blog

4.  Drew McLellan’s Drew’s Marketing Minute

5.  Forbes Work in Progress – Career talk for women

6.  Wall Street Journal’s At Work Blog

7.  Harvard Business Review Blog

8.  Marketing Profs Daily Fix

9.  Social Media Today

10.  LinkedIn Blog

To find out which blogs other career professionals suggest you read, check out this month’s Career Development Carnival on Lynn Dessert’s blogsite, Elephants At Work, the week of May 13th.

Hannah, thanks for the very kind words.

The two of us go way back as blogging buddies, don’t we?. Your blog was one of the first ones I ever read, when I began blogging six or so years ago. And I always keep coming back to it!

My pleasure to include your two terrific sites, Susan. I’m glad to let you in on two new sites to follow.

Thanks for this list of blogs with bite! And thank you for promoting the Career Development Carnival too! I picked up a new one…Drew’s Marketing Minute! I’m excited to check that out!

I think it is important to read outside of your own industry to get ideas and see what’s going on out there in cyber land! Many thanks for your expertise and the quality content you produce (and share!)

Wow, Meg, great list! And I feel very honored to be included! I am also a fan of most of these, but I see 2 new ones I will be trying shortly.

Thank you!
