I got a question the other day about whether this blog helped me get my new job. It was an interesting question, because I hadn’t really thought about it. The job was an internal post, so the concept of someone finding my blog and using it to evaluate what I know about technology, obviously, wasn’t something I had thought about.
On the other hand, my involvement with the tech-blogging community was noted folks in management on previous occasions as a sure sign that I was willing to exist outside the box and constantly learn new things. So I think that willingness to step into something new and learn it played a somewhat significant role in seeing me as a good fit for this job, since it is a brand new position. I know it’s not the only thing, and probably not the biggest, but it was on the list somewhere I’d say.
