Job Search News: Week in Review October 19, 2009

Okay we are going to be trying something a little new over here at YourJobStop.com. Every Friday we will be highlighting the biggest and best job search news from that past week in an attempt to keep us all connected and dialed down with the employment landscape as a whole. These recaps will include photos from online publications, video links, and blog/article spotlights, covering a wide array of employment, job search, and hiring news with an emphasis on how social media is infiltrating the space. So let’s give this a try shall we?

Week of October 19th in Review: Job Search Style

Let’s talk big time news…

We were all bombarded with the articles, news announcements, and optimistic articles that announced unemployment rates are dropping and there are less people on the job search. News sources are saying some states are seeing up to a percent drop in unemployment rates month over month, while many news stories are critical as to what the statistic change means. Apparently the “drop in unemployment rates” is seen as an indication that people are giving up on the job search (or taking a break) rather than actually securing employment. Either way it will be interesting to see what next month’s data reveals. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we are on the up and up rather than admitting defeat.

On the social media of things…

We are loving stories like this, where it is becoming more evident that social networks and the job search are falling in love. Okay maybe not love, but they sure are teaming up. More and more career sites are posting social network updates to bring attention to open positions, as well as use social media to push our information on upcoming events in your area. Ultimately social media is bringing the power of the internet to the local job search process, and we see nothing but good stuff rolling out from it all.

This week’s hiring company—Gone Wild…

Hello Charmin! Are you looking to make 10,000 dollars this holiday season? Well Charmin might just be the company to make it happen. The popular toilet paper brand announced a contest to find 5 people that are willing to work in New York’s Time Square this Christmas as brand ambassadors. What am I love-love-loving about this story? …the company’s innovation to use video and social media to push out the contest and bring awareness to the company itself. Well done Charmin!

Blogs, blogs, and more blogs…

There (as always) were a ton of great blogs published this week regarding career advice, employment information, and personal branding but we can only a highlight a few, so let’s get started. Here are a few of our favorites from the week:

In case you missed it there was big news out of the Laurie Ruettimann this week when she announced that Punk Rock HR is now part of RecruitingBlogs.com! A huge congrats to Laurie, and I’m definitely looking forward to “the more posts” Laurie says this partnership will enable her to write. Yay for more awesome blogging!

I am loving this post by Penelope Trunk, where she revealed four lies about social media.  If you are looking to rid yourself of some common misunderstanding and start optimizing your time spent on these sites, it’s a must read for sure.

Lastly, my favorite post of the week goes to Dan Schwabel who let us know now all personal branding works. In fact he posted the 10 ways personal branding can get you fired. Seriously awesome tips and things worth remembering as you begin or continue your personal branding online. So do yourself a favor, and give it a glance.

Okay folks that does it for us here in our Week in Review—Job Search Style. This is new for us, so let us know if you would like to see more of something or less of something else. Hope you all have a great weekend!
