This week I participated in Chris Brogan’s webinar on how to use Google Plus. For those of you who don’t know who Chris is, please go to his site and see what he is all about. ChrisBrogan.com. I mention this because the world we live and work in is changing so fast and there are some things we all should be keeping up with, especially those of you who are serious about managing your careers and online personal reputation (not to mention being savvy job seekers!).
What is Google Plus?
If you want to learn more about Chris Brogan’s thoughts on Google Plus, you can read and listen to Margo Rose (@margorose) post:

Telecommuting and Freelancing
These two types of work are frequently questioned by those who have been in their careers for a long time. If you haven’t thought about adding freelancing to your career portfolio (and income portfolio) I highly encourage you to do so.
