One of eLearningWeekly.com’s most popular posts is eLearning Jobs. It is even far more popular than the follow-up that B.J. posted called More eLearning Job Resources. Both posts offer links to sites that show elearning job listings galore.
But what do you do once you’ve found a job you want?
We’re here to help with that. In addition to continuing to find the best sites for job searches in our field, we thought we’d forge ahead and write more articles about landing those jobs, preparing for the interviews, and developing a portfolio.
In the meantime, I want to use this editor’s note to solicit contributors. (It’s related!)
I learned from conducting interviews and from sitting in meetings trying to reduce the candidate pools that it’s the little extras that make people stand out. In particular, the people who stand out most are those who have participated in professional groups, done research, or written articles about industry topics.
Contributors can be writers who post once, post more than once, or post regularly. Perhaps you’d like to start a recurring column? Don’t worry about ideas…we’ve got more than we can write about! Let us know your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to hear from you soon.
