Changes at Career Opportunities!

December 30th, 2007 Comments off

Moving to WordPress

If you regularly visit the Career Opportunities blog, you will see that some changes have been made. As of this moment, December 30, 2007, I have moved the blog over to a WordPress platform. This provides me some additional flexibility in managing the blog and will allow me to provide some additional features down the road.

All the old content for Career-Op is still in place and can be found at the original URLs, but any new shows will be posted here.

RSS Feeds and Podcasting

If you are subscribed to Career-Op using a podcatcher, like Apple’s iTunes, you will notice the last few shows will be downloaded a second time. Since the feed was moved, these shows appear as new and podcatchers will download them as a matter of course. Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.

Be well!

There is a simple truth about your career that we often ignore. You can be the best at anything — the best programmer, the best writer, the best chef, the best accountant — but if no one knows about what you do, and how well you do it, what does it really matter. Without visibility in your career you can struggle every day, working harder and harder and yet find yourself going nowhere.

Archive: Reaching for the Stars – November 12, 2004

As I write, Spaceship One has won the X Prize, traveling to non-orbital space twice within two weeks. As I watched the news coverage, my thoughts went beyond the immediate accomplishment and onto the lesson that we can all take away from this successful mission. A clearly defined goal could be the most important part of any high-tech career. Without it, we can become timid, only proceeding slowly and incrementally instead of striving to do our very best. If you don’t have some compelling goals in your life and your career, you should sit down, today, and do some concentrated thinking.
