Wanted: Job Stalker!

As many of you know, I have been guest posting for Chicago Now's Job Stalker for awhile now....but with main blogger Brendan extremely close to regular employment (and my own pressing freelance career/possible shift of non-profit blog), I thought it might be good to help a pal out and encourage anyone out there to consider taking over Job Stalker.

As with any other blogging position, there are prequisites and responsibilities. You would be responsible for posting three times a week (perhaps more frequently) about your experiences in the job search (with particular focus on the metropolitan Chicago area), as well as any resources/books focusing on the subject. (Brendan's done a great job in organizing the blog). You'll have two - count 'em, two writing/blogging eminents helping you transition, so it will be a breeze.

But what are the requirements, you may be asking? Well, let me simply list them in bullet point form:
  • Currently out of work and actively looking for work
  • Writing Ability (especially with blogging) and familiarity with WordPress
  • Lives in the metropolitan Chicago area
  • Wishes to gain visibility (this is purely an unpaid gig), but there are plenty of networking opportunities
  • Provide appropriate marketing via social media (Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus)

Simply, your "job" would be to write clever stuff....and get people to read it. It's a great way to expand your network (it's definitely helped me), and also would allow you to do me - and a pal - a great favor.

If you're interested, please shoot me an e-mail and I'll connect you with Brendan. As always, thanks for reading!
