A blog (web log) is a website where text, images and links are used to create a regular commentary that’s either personal or on a specific topic. Many blogs are interactive, where readers post comments about the content.
You may be able to use a work search blog or an industry-related blog to grab the attention of employers and recruiters searching for potential candidates. This kind of blog may also attract others in your field and open up networking possibilities.
If you enjoy blogging, think about creating a work search or industry-related blog:
- If you’re looking for work while currently employed, create an industry blog (not a work search blog) to open up networking possibilities.
- Keep your blog businesslike. Use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation. Make sure the content and tone are professional. Block comments that aren’t appropriate.
- Use tags (search terms for a blog), keywords and job position names in your industry to improve your blog’s search status.
