If you went to school in the 90′s you will have no memory of a life ‘without the Internet’, it’s ingrained in you.
Anytime before 1995, the chances are you do remember the Internet in it’s infancy, back in the days of screeching Internet connections and downloads that took days, not to mention wires everywhere. I still have one lurking underneath a wooden floor.
At the same time, you’ve probably heard of blogs and blogging.
In fact, you’ve probably been on thousands over your Internet life.
In the not so distant past, blogging was assumed to be for just for writers, ‘experts’ and individuals sharing personal life stories. And more recently business owners (although many are still digging their heels refusing to see the benefits.)
Many people, no, the majority of people changing career or looking for a new gig to hang out in, will only do the basics. How many will blog? Hardly any. Why? Because not many people have even considered writing a blog to change career, or they don’t know how.
So, on the 15th March, we’re going to talk blogging for a career change.
Sorry, you missed it. Why not come to the next career cafe?
