  1. Dean – Thanks for the blurb. The group I am addressing is a job seekers group. I have found very few professionals that are leveraging the Internet effectively to bring the jobs to them. Most have moved from searching print want ads to online ads and job posting sites, but it is the rare individual that is running their own online PR campaign to set themselves apart from the crowd.

  2. John,

    Great point and that is exactly what we have the power to do today: be our own publicist. Unemployment is tough but often job seekers lull themselves into a false sense of security when attending groups. They believe they are doing all they can do and fail to make phone inquiries (15 per day)or socially network online with LinkedIn, Plaxo, Facebook and other sites with connectivity.

  4. John,

    That pink arrow says it all-I haven’t heard the “Stallion” reference is a very long time. As for Philly weight, it’s a lot of chicken and sans on the beef. Excellent writing and thank you for the kind mentions!
