Brazen Careerist Kicks Ass, Not Just Because I Said So

Posted in Uncategorized by notsoliteral on August 25, 2009

Not everybody blogs, not everybody social networks and not everyone is hiring, but if you’re in Generation Y and interested in finding a good job or any of the previous mentioned things, Brazen Careerist is definitely a site you want to be on. They just launched their new social networking platform and it looks great!

No single website has opened up more professional opportunities for me. Personally, I am a fan of writing and reading blogs, so I’m engaging in a community that values interaction between one another. If your ideas and perspectives on being young and struggling to make it are on point, they’ll let you know! If you’re offering advice to people who may be going through some of the challenges you’ve face in the past, they’ll appreciate it there too!

Plus you never know who’s on these board, reading these blogs, contributing to group discussions. The potential employer of your dreams may be on Brazen Careerist looking for new talent. The ones who do come to Brazen Careerist realize that it is a persons ideas that make them valuable, not necessarily two years of office experience, a 3.45 GPA and references from a college internship.

I suggest you go and check out the site, do some networking, set up a profile and if you have a blog, syndicate it through Brazen Careerist’s feed! I’m the Community Editor, so if you have any questions about publishing posts or anything else, hit me up. Otherwise, I’ll see you on there!

    I am impressed with BrazenCareerist and wish the team the best of luck. I do wounder want the long term plan is for the site and how the team plans on monetizing it. Looking at sites like LinkedIn and Facebook (I know you have a different approach) seem to be potential competitors or acquirers. Just wondering if you would do a post or two on the future of BrazenCareerist and how you see it fitting into the grand scheme of digital life.

    ok, i’ve heard a lot about this brazen careerist and so tempted to join. but i think it’s only favorable to those who are in US, Canada and probably in UK. i’m in asia, btw.

    just wonderin’, what’s the highest grade one can get in college there in US? here, a flat one is equivalent to 100%.

    John, the benefits of using Brazen Careerist go beyond geography because there are young professionals talking about the troubles and challenges they have, offering ideas and tactics for the rest of us who may face the same problems. The conversations surrounding everyday career matters are worth joining for alone in my opinion.

    I hope you can join! If you need any help getting set up let me know!
