I started blogging in March 2011. I wanted to revitalize and resurrect my career from a cold icy grave that I help to put there with complacency. I take full responsibility. I never stopped loving HR; I just had no network or resources. I had no lifeline.
I developed CostofWork with 2 goals in mind; 1. Display my expertise and skills, 2. Help people.
People need the help of HR, individually and collectively within organizations. I’ve worked with plenty of HR professionals, some of them are sharp as a tact, and others aren’t. It’s not all their fault, some went to major universities with bad curriculums. Others really just would rather be doing something else. The rank in file employees, they really need help because many of them
do not know…do not realize how fast things have changed.
Blogging is a business. It is valuable.
You can get lost in the business of blogging if you do not understand the point of your blog. Are you blogging for money, blogging4jobs (what’s up Jessica?), blogging for the love of blogging, or to connect with others?
There are so many great HR blogs out there; I won’t even begin to list them because that would ultimately exclude someone and that sucks.
I’m done with labels. You can’t categorize, compartmentalize or marginalize me for easy reference. I’m an HR professional with skills, experience and a Master’s degree who will do whatever it takes to be effective.
Welcome to CostofWork, where I discuss HUMAN RESOURCE related subject matter.
