Hello all Career Opportunities listeners and readers!
I hope you New Year was great and you are already diving into new ways to make your career even better.
That said, I am starting a project myself. I have been remiss over the last couple of years in creating one, complete, archive page for 2005, 2006 and 2007. You can find all the other years near the bottom of the right-hand column on the blog (http://welchwrite.com/career/), but I really want to get these pages up to date. So, over the next week or so, I am going to get these index pages built and linked to the blog pages. Really! Promise! (SMILE) Then you will be able to review each year’s column in one place.
Now, there is a bit of a selfish reason to do this do. While a static archive page is nice, I realize that I really need to get each column tagged with a few important keywords so that they can be found in services like del.icio.us, StumbleUpon and others. Here is where I am asking for your help. I now have over 500 columns in the archives and there is simply no way I can tag them all by myself.
I am asking you to please tag any Career-Op columns and podcasts that you found particularly interesting in your favorite bookmarking and tagging services. For newer shows, this is made a bit easier by the links available below each blog post. You will see links to del.icio.us,, Facebook and StumbleUpon there. If you use services like NewsVine, Digg or others, let me know and I will add links for these services, as well.
If you are trying to locate a favorite column from past years, you can use the WelchWrite Site Search feature to find them at http://welchwrite.com/search.asp. Your support for Career Opportunities, and spreading word about it, is always greatly appreciated. I am not asking you to do mass updates or anything like that, only that if you find something particularly interesting, you let others know using whatever systems you find useful.
Thank you for any help you can provide. I am hoping, like every year, to make 2008 the best year ever for Career Opportunities. This is only possible with your continued support and assistance. Thank you again!
