Are you struggling to figure out how to best leverage social media into your
job search marketing plan? My upcoming book, "I'm Job Searching, Now What???"
will delve into using social media as one of the multiple strategies in your
job search. I wanted to touch on a couple of ways you might use social media
in your job search with Twitter.

LinkedIn, ZoomInfo, Jigsaw, etc. all provide a great research platform. I use
LinkedIn many times when I'm researching a company because not only does it
give me the company information, key statistics, news articles, etc., but it
also provides me information about with whom I'm connected. I use this
information to see if the company and my connections within the company are
on Twitter. If they are, I will begin to follow them. Why? I may be able to
get a sense of company culture, job postings that... (more)
Ok, so, here are my thoughts on Ulitzer...
As a blogger, I focus on traffic and I spend quite a lot of time optimizing
Since the target audience of my articles is much greater than the reach of my
blog, Ulitzer is actually helping me increase my content reach.
Moreover, Ulitzer does it in a very fair way since links back to my posts or
other locations are without the evil "nofollow" - providing a nice SEO boost.
It also gives me some good metrics that are very useful data points on the
effectiveness of my blog articles.
And last but not least, it allows my article to appears in the news listings
of the two major search engines, which is a very nice channel extension.
So, all of this means that, while Ulitzer might be seen as a competing
channel to bloggers, I think that bloggers should realize the tremendous
value it could bring to their blog.
I think to mater... (more)
Personal Branding Journal on Ulitzer
Every year since I founded my company, Reach, in 2001, I've made predictions
about how the world of personal branding will evolve in the coming year. Here
are my top 10 for 2010.
1. Video, Video, Video
Thanks to greater bandwidth, cheaper storage, and a proliferation of products
and services that make shooting, storing, viewing, and sharing video easy
(Flip video, iPhone 3GS, YouTube, vimeo, blip.tv, vodpod, etc.), video will
be king in 2010.
Video is ideal because it allows careerists to deliver a complete
communication and convey their personality—a critical component of
branding. More services like videoBIO (a Reach Personal Branding partner)
will make it easier to cost-effectively build a powerful and positive brand
image using video.
2. Hiring Process
Companies will be hiring brands rather than employees. They will use social... (more)
I’ve been thinking about my presence on the internet from the early days,
from my time at Argonne National Labs near Chicago in 1988-1989 and from
my graduate school days at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis in
1989-1992. That was even before the web browser days, which didn’t come out
till 1993-94. Mosaic browser was first released in 1993. And I remember the
excitement we had at work when we installed an early version of Netscape
browser in 1994.Partial map of internet 2005,via Wikipedia
There was internet of course even before the browser. In addition to the
worldwide email which primarily linked major universities and research
labs, there were numerous user groups — virtual discussion groups — that
I used to take part in and contribute to. I suppose that was the equivalent
of today’s social networking. Amazingly enough, after all these years most
of tha... (more)

Gone are the days of “Just the facts, M’am.” Instead we’re all trying
to suss each other out in the relationship economy. Do I share something in
common with you? How do we relate to each other? Are you relevant to my work?
We're exchanging stories all the time to determine if we belong in the same
That’s why the resume is on the out, and the bio is on the rise. People
work with people they can relate to and identify with. Trust comes from
personal disclosure. And that kind of sharing is hard to convey in a resume.
Your bio needs to tell the bigger story. Especially, when you’re in
business for yourself, or in the business of r... (more)
Network computing posted a good article on tool for assessing cloud ROI.
Check it out below.
Posted by David Greenfield, January 08, 2013
Gone are the days when the cloud meant simply a hosted virtual instance or
resource on some provider's network. We're seeing all sorts of new variants
and twists emerge. I'm not just referring to the use of storage or compute
resources or those that allow for elastic computing, such as
Amazon's Reserved Instances.
We're likely to see industry-specific community clouds emerge. These clouds
are built to address the security and compliance needs within specific
industries. Examples of community clouds may well be Verizon's Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) cloud service, which
targets the healthcare community; and Metal Lynx, a cloud community targeting
buyers and sellers of precious metals.
