SI Careers Blog Ranked #10 Career Services Blog

I recently was notified by a fellow job search blogger, that he ranked our SI Career Blog #10 of all university career services blogs! I'm pretty excited about this -- and it encourages me to continue posting interesting and relevant articles and tips for our readers.

See the link here (and the opening text below) to read about our blog and the other top 10!

Top 10 College Career Services Blogs
Posted by Willy Franzen on Monday, June 30, 2008

A lot of people ask us, “Where do you find all the companies and jobs that you write about?? We’ve already told you about how we use Google, magazine lists, and television to find jobs, but we have a few other tricks up our sleeves as well. One is blogs - we use them a lot. Some of the most useful blogs are those published by career services offices at colleges and universities. They’re full of great tips and excellent entry-level job and internship opportunities. Although the blogs are usually geared towards the students of the school, they’re open to the public.

All of the sites we’ve included on our list of the Top 10 College Career Service Blogs are of great quality, but there weren’t too many blogs that we left off the list. That begs the question: Why aren’t more career services offices blogging? Is it lack of student interest? Many career services offices offer newsletters through e-mail, and some of these are published online, but why not use a blog for updates? It’s really easy to do, and it’s a much more flexible form of communication. We hope to see more career services offices pick up blogging. They can take a lead from the blogs listed below.
