Blogging and Your New Career

I've talked before about the possibilities of damaging your career by blogging, but is it possible that blogging can advance your career as well? I've read a few articles written by people who think so. I'm not talking about blogging as a career either.

Blogging demonstrates a multitude of skills that employers want to see. It shows that you are comfortable with technology, have good written skills, are dedicated and self-motivated, and can market yourself. As a bonus, if you blog about the field you are interested in, it shows that you have knowledge of it.

If you already have a blog, spice it up a little so that you would be proud to show it to potential employers, and consider an extra blog to write about your chosen industry or market. If you don't have a blog, now might just be the time to start. You might also consider reading and commenting on some companies' blogs that you would like to work for.
