Moved to our new home

wny job huntJust a quick note commemorating the fact that I’ve registered the new domain name of wnyjobhunt.com and working on improving its new home. All links should still work since I have forwarded the addresses. I’ve added to all posts a section at the bottom that displays similar posts so discovering related material should be easier and faster.

Two Years Strong!

two year anniversaryI’ve been writing and researching for this project for two years now, and it’s been a great experience. I’ve learned a lot along the way–both about job hunting and about myself. The hardest thing for me is trying to figure out who I am as a person and what role I want to play in society. I feel I am not alone in this regard, and it gives me encouragement to continue working on this site. I’ve found networking and learning from other people to be one of the best ways of learning about my self and the world. Asking questions and bouncing ideas back and forth with someone is unmatched in its ability to create something from nothing. Very few times in history has someone created an idea solely by themselves. Creation is definitely a group effort.

I hope to improve the site and deliver excellent content that will help someone else find a job. I haven’t found my dream job yet, but I feel I am at least on the right track now. Hopefully, I will have an  impact on someone else and they find their track too. It’s what my goal is for this project: To find my dream job and share what I’ve learned along the way.

It’s Time for a Refresh

job hunt refresh2013 is here so I think it’s time to make some changes to the site. My priorities are to make posts easier to read and with more links to related content. I’d like to make it so when I refer to something, such as another post, it will now be just one-click away. I’m also looking for a better designed theme.

Soon I will be moving the site to wnyjobhunt.com (UPDATE: DONE) instead of the current address that includes wordpress in the name. There’s some important technical steps that need to be taken to ensure this transition runs smoothly, but I believe it can be accomplished without any major glitches. Hopefully, if everything runs smoothly I can have the new site up and running, and it’ll  be more enjoyable to read and look at. Here’s to an even better year!

Too Long; Didn’t Read

too long; didn't readTL;DR – Have you seen this before? Chances are if you browse Reddit or other online forums you might have come across this little phrase. It fits our modern society very well. We want to know the main point of the story, but we also like to know the details. In order to get the best of both, we developed this little phrase. Whenever a person posts to a forum they sometimes ramble on and on…and on, which is good for details, but bad for time. TL;DR can save the day by having the main point at the end of the article so anyone can understand the post without having to read each and every word, thus, saving time and energy.
