Seeking Example of Blogger Hired Thanks to Blog

Posted by: of on 09/29/04

Folks, I’ve been contacted by a journalist for a major media outlet who wants to write a story about blogs helping people land jobs. She’s seeking examples of such. Only caveat is outside of the realm of journalism, as she already has examples of that. If you have such a story to share or know of someone who does, email me at rick at e-summary dot com. Need this ASAP; don’t bother later than Friday of this week.

  1. Presume you have already mentioned Robert Scoble at Microsoft – would you call him a journalist?

  2. I don’t think Robert was hired BECAUSE he was a blogger, though it didn’t hurt with his visibility. Does Romanesko count? That was back in the day and I’m not sure it’s not journalism …

    I know loads of folks where the blog has helped… But none where it was necessarily a deciding factor. Sorry Rick.

    That said, if you email Robert Scoble (rscoble@) he may know folk, since he’s rather connected.

  3. Jeremy,

    I think she’d be interested in hearing from people where it was even an important influence, not necessarily the decisive factor.

  4. Maybe Seb Paquet, as he finally took a job at the National Research Council of Canada, but had other offers as well. I’m sure he’d tell you if you asked.
