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:
2. Hannah Morgan’s Career Sherpa
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
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.
