Remember that one meeting where I went on a rant about setting up Twitter, LinkedIn and PROpenMic accounts and Google reader to save time and keep up with blogs (also Joel Johnson discussed this too)?  There is a method to my madness because this will come in handy to you someday.  A former co-worker of mine told me the other day he was hired at a job that he LOVES because he had sent his now boss a Twitter message after his interview.

  1. Thanks for including me Or at least including the list from Odwyer that included me). There’s a lot of smart people on that list, with a lot of great information that they love to share.

  2. Thanks for including DC Public Affairs + Communications Jobs in the listing.

    FYI – the Culpwrit blog (coincidentally listed right above mine) may be of particular interest to your readership – it’s oriented towards developing a PR career path, with lots of info for people trying to break into the business.

    Also – the Riley Guide is not a PR blog – but it is a nice compendium of job-search resources, and maybe some of your folks would be interested in that.
