An article in the Friday, April 20, 2007 Nanaimo Daily News titled, Blogging a growing trend, got me thinking how blogging could help you in your job search. Reading industry and company blogs is a great way to keep on top of labour market trends. This Nanaimo Daily News article features the GoNanaimo.com blog. I checked out the GoNanaimo blog and the most recent story posted is about the new construction of a high-end condo complex. This is great recent labour market information and if I was looking for construction work I might go and hand in a resume at the job site.
