The Career Development Carnival is a new initiative that Lynn Dessert and I will debut in January, 2012. What is a carnival and how can it help you?
Lynn and I are planning to introduce you to a slew of great writers and their stories to help you manage your career.
What is a Carnival?
Carnivals are hosted by blogs and represent opportunities for writers and thought leaders to share their information, insights or tips in one central place. As a reader, you spend less time going to multiple blogs searching for the latest information and may find a new blog or writer you connect with.
There are many carnivals online and each carnival has a unique topic, here are two other carnivals that I follow and Lynn participates in:
How will the Career Development Carnival work?
Once a month, Elephants at Work or Career Sherpa will highlight the Career Development Carnival blog post submissions that meet our expectations of quality content and great writing. Once we have reviewed the posts and placed all the links on one of our sites, the carnival is live!
In the carnival blog post, there will be a story or blog post teaser and you can decide if to read more by clicking through to the author’s post on their blog. If you like what you read, we encourage you to join their mailing list to receive the author’s updates.
If you are not on Elephants at Work or Career Sherpa’s mailing lists, join us today so that you don’t miss all the excitement!
Will the Career Development Topics Interest you?
If you are already read Elephants at Work or Career Sherpa, the Career Development Carnival topics will interest you. Because career development is a broad topic, our focus will be on:
- Career Management
- Job Search Resources
- Career Exploration
- Networking Tips
- Personal Branding/Reputation Management
If I am a blogger, how do I submit an article?
Each month, the Career Development Carnival will rotate from Elephants at Work to Career Sherpa. There are a few things you can do to ensure your submission gets to the right person:
- Visit the Career Development Carnival Website. Read about the Career Development Post Guidelines.
- Sign up for the Career Development Carnival mailing list update here. Note: This list is for bloggers, writers or contributors only. You will receive advance notification that submissions are being accepted.
- Submissions are accepted through the Blog Carnival website starting at the beginning of each month until two days before the carnival date.
The first month’s Career Development Carnival will be hosted on Lynn’s site, Elephants at Work on January 19th, 2012.
We are excited for the entertainment and hope you are too! What a super way to start the new year on the right foot!
