Blogging4Jobs started in 2005 with the goal of putting resources at the fingertips of our readers first starting with job seekers and focusing our efforts on human resources and recruiting practitioners. Over the years, we’ve changed, evolved and grown our efforts and outreach different ways. In 2010, we launched our reader webinars providing viewers with first HRCI and now SHRM recertification credits. In 2011, we began offering our webinars for on-demand viewing and made them eligible for recertification credits. Also in 2011, we organized the first SHRM party guide and have extended this list to a number of industry conferences and events as well as our popular text party notifications. In 2014, we began offering podcasts and resources with our Workology Podcast. These enhancements started first with feedback and suggestions made by you, blog readers, and friends. I’ve made mention that Blogging4Jobs will be going through some changes over the coming weeks and months as we begin rebranding as Workology, but first I wanted to hear from you about what the types of resources, information and community you want to see which is why I’m inviting you to complete our 2016-2017 annual blog reader survey.

Feedback Is a Gift
While the blog is beginning it’s transition, it’s a good time to reflect, ask for input and feedback from you, who are accessing resources and information here every single day. The blog has remained a grass roots effort. We are a community. We are peers and colleagues. We are family. We’ve spent the last 9 years developing and providing these resources most of the time either developed by myself or using a very small team of freelancers and virtual assistants as well as friends and volunteers who have helped me keep this blog humming along while I have juggled projects, client work and other career opportunities. I
At present, outside of Megan who serves as my part time the blog editor and Peter Clayton, who helps me with podcast product and editing, I am a team of one. I rely on practitioners, partners and colleagues to keep the lights on and help work together committing to providing real resources for the HR and recruiting community that are practitioner focused and for as much as I am able product and technology neutral. The fact that I’m small affords me the opportunity to move quickly, be creative and hear your feedback in ways that larger organizations and businesses are unable to be flexible but also engage with the practitioner community. By keeping this blog, I can keep my pulse on the exact kind of resources, support and information you need to do your best work in the HR and talent acquisition industry.
The future of the blog as well as my career starts first with community, conversation and resources, and that means YOU. I’d like to thank you for your help, support and friendship over these last 9 years. I’d like to again ask for you to provide feedback so that I can continue to provide resources and support in ways that are useful and meaningful for you as you grow in your careers and build amazing departments and teams within your organizations. The continued success of this blog lies with you. That starts by clicking the button below and completing my short 13 question survey.
By completing the survey, you are helping me serve the blog readership and HR and recruiting community in the best way that I know how. For your help and assistance, I will randomly select 5 readers who complete the survey the opportunity to receive a $25 Visa gift card as a thank you.
