This is inspiration for everybody mindful of their career, but especially for those of you considering changing jobs or about to step into a new role.
On LinkedIn she has a 1,000,000+ following and 250+ posts and counting. Her posts have a strong focus on personal branding, resume development and the recruiting process in general seen from the candidate’s point of view. Her experience within the HR field stretches almost 20 years, so she has an opinion or two about a wide range of topics.
Let me give you a quick flavour what she writes about with a few of my favourite posts by her:
- 3 Things Make Recruiters Fall In Love With You – On how to become an insider with the most important people if you want to land a job
- My First 90 Days: Please Don’t Strive to Be the Office ‘Golden Child’ – On how to get off to a fantastic start in a new job. She, among other things, lists 12 tips for creating a good first impression and building strong office relationships.
- How To Double Your Salary In The Post-Recession Hiring Boom – On getting paid well. Great post with her 6 steps to success and 6 tips for you to emulate her success without having to the take same hard road as her.
As you can see she covers some interesting aspects and you will no doubt do wise in following her on LinkedIn and read her posts regularly.
One of her projects include CAREEREALISM, but this is where it gets a bit commercial. It’s a business, and they need to make money, so not everything here is free. But they offer some additional articles of some value. The site facilitates contact between job seekers and recruiters, so this is a different way of finding yourself a new interesting job.
However, I have found the most inspiration in J.T. O’Donnell’s posts on LinkedIn and I bet you will find a lot of inspiration you can leverage to make your career even better than it already is.
