Lately I find that I disagree with more of what I read from the job search, career, HR and recruiting community than I agree with.
Maybe it’s because being on the other side of 40 I am starting to embrace the life of a curmudgeon. I hope that’s not the case. Hopefully it’s because I have been around long enough to have a finely tuned BS meter.
And so it happens again today that I read something and my BS meter breaks. Not just goes off but breaks...
On Twitter I saw a link to The Secret to a Successful Career Transition: Blogging, clicked and was taken to Brazen Careerist.
Third paragraph in I read:
Looking back more than eight years later, I wish someone would have told me that I didn’t need to wait for a job or title or promotion to become an expert.
They didn’t tell you because it is not true!!!
I agree with the ideas in the article that writing a blog can help with recognition.
