Staying up-to-date on what’s going on in your career and even outside of your career can take time. When you’re working it’s hard to find time to invest in reading, listening or watching content.
Likewise, it’s easy to discover you’re out of touch with what’s going on in the world of job search, career management and talent acquisition.
The result – this weekly Summary Sunday which compiles some of the most popular articles related to job search.
Each week I share over 50 articles on Twitter related to job search and career management. I read every one of them before I share. I do this to keep myself updated on what’s going on.
How do I find the time? It’s part of my daily ritual. I invest 20-30 minutes a day looking through my home feed on LinkedIn, looking at my curated Twitter lists and a few emailed newsletters.
Anyone can do this.
The benefit is two-fold. I stay informed and I build credibility with those who read what I publish.
My challenge to you is to invest time reading, listening or watching content to uplevel your knowledge.
I’m so glad to hear LinkedIn’s Kudos is now available on the desktop version! Go give someone the shoutout they deserve! https://t.co/7or9mE33J5
