In the career space, there are a ton of self-proclaimed experts. Thousands, maybe.
So, how do you know who to listen to – right now – to help get your first, or next, job? Who gives out practical, non-fluffy, actionable advice you can put to use right now?
At YouTern, we help answer that question with the 2013 version of our “Top 50 Bloggers for Young Careerists”!
Thanks to the support of our community, YouTern and The Savvy Intern are now more popular than Argo; considered as contagious as the Harlem Shake; and are cuter than Taylor Swift!
Okay, no. We’re not any of those things… However, we ARE one of the five finalists in About.com’s “Reader’s Choice Awards for 2013”…
In 2012, YouTern’s blog, The Savvy Intern, continued to evolve and expand. Thanks to you and our wonderful authors, we’re honored and humbled to have been named to several “Top Blog” lists this year.
More important, whether you’re a regular reader or just discovered us, we sincerely hope you read us as we intend — as a virtual mentor, diverse support group, a collection of amazing advice… and perhaps even as a knowledgeable reference librarian (sans the reading glasses and the “Quiet!” shushes)…
Are you a college student or recent grad about to dive into a job search? Need something besides a student resume to catch the eye of potential employers?
Sometimes it can seem like you’re fighting an uphill battle with the chicken-or-the-egg syndrome, especially if you’re shy on work experience in your field. But you can use your student experience to fill in some blanks—especially if you’ve been writing a lot of papers.
Starting my own business was a work in progress for some time.
So as I am approaching month two of my fabulous adventure, I wanted all of you to know all of the fabulous people behind my success. Each one of them kept me motivated towards my goal, inspired me, and taught me to dream big (in no particular order).
Wherever you want your own big dreams to take you… follow these kick-ass people… They’ll change your life!
It’s no secret that Millennials hate their entry-level jobs. There’s nothing more depressing than spending four years in college thinking you’re building the foundation for a successful career and find yourself fetching coffee and licking envelopes in a stuffy office. Anyone else with me on that?
Guess what! guess what? The ways I leveraged blogging to skip entry-level work can be replicated by anyone with a computer and a few good ideas.
So how can you skip an entry level position by blogging?
