10 Inspiring Blogs To Help Boost Your Career

10 Inspiring Blogs To Help Boost Your Career

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you’ve probably already heard us complaining about the mounds of absolute crap, so-called “career advice” that can be found online..?

It frustrates us because we know how hard it can be to find a job in the first place, without being hoodwinked by myths about “being more creative” or pulling silly job-hunt stunts!

(When, most of the time, a simple, well-written and structured CV is actually more appealing.)

However, there are some trustworthy companies (like us) out there, offering really great advice on career development, job hunting and entrepreneurship – so this week, I’ve been sourcing them for you!

Introducing, the top 10 reputable career blogs, that you should be subscribed to, to boost your career! (Excluding our own blog of course, but hopefully you’ve already seen the value in that.)

Advice on Training to Be a Carer

My favourite thing about this blog is… it’s basically a one-stop-shop of information, offering general guidance for both employers and job-seekers, but also approaching industry-specific topics (like “advice on training to be a carer”).

Summary

Self-development is SO important when it comes to having a successful career (that you love) and that means doing your research whilst happily working for a company, as well as when you’re looking for a new job.

Set aside some time each day (if you want to be really productive, you could take advantage of your commute) to read up on your industry, job role and/or company.

I’m more than happy to admit that I don’t (yet!) know everything there is to know about HR and recruitment; that’s why myself and the other Coburg Banks directors are signed up to a variety of blogs, magazines and newsletters.

Recruiter Pro Tip.

Don’t believe everything you read! There are plenty of sites that falsely claim to know what they’re talking about.

Choose a few (perhaps 11?!) trusted sites to subscribe to and whittle down your email preferences so that each week you only receive relevant updates, in easily-digestible chunks.

You could also consider joining an online community to gain more insight, like…

Just be careful not to go ‘subscribe-happy’ and sign up to too many sites, it’ll take up most of your time just culling irrelevant information.

If you come up with any other blogs that you think we should have included, feel free to let us know.

Happy browsing!
