18 to 30 year olds, take note – and then action.
Brazen Careerist (BC) has evolved to position itself as the #1 site for career management among Generation Y…you know who you are.
Watch this to get a better idea of what the new and evolved BC is about.
As one of the founders, Ryan Paugh, shared with me:
“Our vision is to create a career management tool that helps those with less experience level the playing field. Sites like LinkedIn are wonderful if you already have a Rolodex full of connections, or if you have years of experience to share with potential employers. But what about people new to the workforce? And what about people who want to make a big career shift? How do you network?
We’re creating a place where instead of experience, your ideas are most important. We encourage people to connect through blogs, groups, comments, etc, and build relationships with each other. I’ve never had a worthwhile conversation on LinkedIn and I’d like to see a career management tool that fosters real conversations. I think Brazen Careerist will help do that :)”
And what does that have to do with my blog – and with you, for that matter?
For those of you who don’t know, I’m one of the earliest adopters of the Brazen Careerist community.
When looking for a place to feature my blog; a place where my ideas would be heard; a place to have meaningful conversations with like-minded people who are doing great things in the community – I found Brazen Careerist. (It helped that they are ranked #1 by Alltop)
After some persuasion*, the editing team at BC invited me to be a guest blogger. Later on they syndicated my blog. As a result, my posts are now featured as regularly as I publish them on my own blog. (Click here to see for yourself) Something I’m most grateful for.
For more than a year I have been connecting with like-minded people around the world. And I’d like to invite you to do the same. Your career will benefit – big time.
How do I know?
Because BC is a community of do-ers not talkers.
I invite you to browse through the profiles of members. I trust that you will find young professionals commited to achievement, to contribution – and as some have expressed, to changing the world.
NOW go do something for your career, join – it’s free.
Better yet, take the plunge into conversations. At times you will finhat some may disagree with your ideas. Don’t take it personally. Soon you will find that it’s healthy disagreement. Rarely does meaningless chatter develop.
I’ll see you at BC.
*During their early days, BC was only for 18 to 30 year-old bloggers. Eager to join, I made my case by telling Ryan that I still get carded at bars – which is true. Shortly after I was allowed to join as a guest. (and that’s one of my writing career‘s milestones)
