Robert Scoble on Job Hunting

- January 15, 2009 - 2 Comments

Interesting story and post over on Scobleizer on Job Hunting in 2009. Robert makes a good set of points on how to get your name out there, network in the Web 2.0 World, build your personal brand, and get that next job if you are looking for one. I recently recruited a gent to Cisco because I wrote a blog post, he wrote a better one about mine, and I thought, “hmmm, this guy is bright, philosophically aligned, and writes really well. I wonder if he’d want to work here? ” Reaching out on Twitter over the next few days we started down the road that led to him joining Cisco. Times are hard right now, and I have a lot of friends asking for advice, jobs, introductions, etc. I like Robert’s advice- post, link, blog, join the conversation, show who you are, etc.

In an effort to keep conversations fresh, Cisco Blogs closes comments after 60 days. Please visit the Cisco Blogs hub page for the latest content.
