Blogging for Success

I’ve been writing a number of blog posts this summer as a guest blogger for Babson’s Center for Career Development.

I received a grant to assist me during the summer, and one of the conditions was that I blog about my experience at least eight times. I was more than happy to do that because of the help that CCD was providing.

However, I didn’t fully expect that blogging would also help me at my agency. Through blogging, I was able to have my thoughts shared around the agency, even to people I may not typically interact with. They were able to see not only my writing skills, but the level of thought that I put into the work I do.

The reason I say all this is because I’m not a blogging believer. If any of my readers have an internship (or a full-time job) it’s a great idea to blog about your experiences and share it with a supervisor or two–you never know who could end up reading it!
