Your Blog Could Get You Hired

Posted on July 14, 2005

There have been plenty of news articles about people getting fired because of their blog -- but people have also been hired because of their blog. The Virtual Handshake has a post about several people who have been hired because of their blog. The post also mentions some companies that specifically use the blogosphere to find employees.

The Virtual Handshake says Matthew Yglesias's political blog landed him a journalism job out of college; Rick Klau was hired by SocialText after the CEO found his blog and Terrance Heath's blog got him a job at EchoDitto. The rest of the Virtual Handshake entry gives examples of some blogs that employers would like.
