Blogging Into a Job

Jeremy Vaught set his sights on working on seesmic, sent in a resume, and started blogging about the company.  Around a week later, he got an offer to come join Seesmic.  It’s an interesting strategy, although less applicable if your desired job isn’t “blogger,” but it does give you a sense of how you could think outside the box on the job search.

  1. Hi Geoffrey,
    In that case I have a second example for you. Way back in the day I started a podcast about Second Life called SecondLifePodcast.com with the idea in mind to make money in a virtual world. Six episodes in, I was able to use my connections I gained from the podcast to get a Project Manager job with the largest Virtual World developer, not a podcaster job.

    So it works in more ways that one. Definitely thin outside of the box.

    Thanks for posting about my story though!
