When I was asked to write The Real Life Guide to Starting Your Career 11 years ago, I never really thought I’d be making a living writing about careers for Monster.com, much less providing outplacement services. But here I am doing both.
Lately, I’ve been writing mostly about employment opportunities provided by the American Revinestment and Recovery Act for a special section on Monster.com. It’s pretty amazing how many jobs are in line to be saved from the axe or created from scratch. There’s also money for training and development. Very cool!
I’ve also been consulting individually with folks who want to charge up their resumes and cover letters. It’s been really rewarding to use the strategies we employ here at the Factory and with our clients to help folks looking for work. Stay tuned for a few success stories.
The biggest news so far is that we’re now getting interest from FORTUNE 500 companies to present our Effective Writing Series – Careers workshops as part of their outplacement services, and we’ve been approached to do a session on social networking and job search for a group in Detroit. Stay tuned.
Let us know if we can help you create jobs-related content or provide career writing services.
