In this depressed economy you will find that the competition has not only increased in quantity, it has increased in quality due to more qualified professionals being jettisoned into the market. In this situation, it helps to gain an edge in any way you can.
Career blogs offer an excellent way to gain perspective from other professionals on everything from regional employment trends to unique ways to conduct one’s job search. CNN recently provided an excellent article identifying what they thought to be the best career blogs you should visit. There are several others out there that are excellent as well, but I have to say that I agree with most of their choices.
Please feel free to provide feedback if you have visited these sites before and have an pinion on ther effectiveness.
