The Career Development Carnival: February 2012

The Career Development Carnival logo

Who doesn’t love a carnival? Cotton candy, games, prizes and rides!  It is with the same excitement and anticipation that I announce this month’s Career Development Carnival.

This is the second (of many more to come!) Career Development Carnival. (If you missed our first Career Development Carnival, it is over here, Elephant’s at Work: The Career Development Carnival: January 2012)

Lynn Dessert approached me several months ago to talk about the idea and we’ve worked together to create a place and space where careerists and job seekers can come to get a vast collection of information. You will find information on:

  • Career Exploration
  • Career Management
  • Job Search Resources
  • Networking Tips
  • Personal Branding
  • Reputation Management

We hope it feels like a carnival for you as well.

Thank you to the many contributors this month and I hope that you will share and comment on their posts! Scroll down, click through and have a look at the articles written by talented writers, story tellers and wizards!
