As the originator of bioblogs, a new art form for traditional resumes, I am interested in what recruiters think about them and particularly, if they don't care for them, what they suggest as an alternative to the look-alike resumes that circulate these days.

For those who haven't yet seen a bioblog, here's where to see them:



Color and b/w samples are shown on these blogs, and recruiters who are used to working with the… Continue

Learn How Your Blog Spot Can Receive Free Advertising through www.RecruitingBlogswap.com

Do you want to attract more visitors to your career site but don’t have the budget for a big advertising or public relations campaign? No problem.

One of the most efficient and effective ways to attract highly targeted visitors to any web site is by increasing the number of visitors who find you in the organic (free) results of search engines such as Google and Yahoo. But how do you increase the number of those visitors? Make your web site come up higher in the results so more of your targeted visitors will see your site and click through. Two of the best ways of making your site come up higher in the search results are to add more content to your site and to increase the number of links to your site.

The Recruiting Blogswap at can help your career site come up higher in the search engine results because you can use it to increase the amount of content on your site and the number of links to your site. The Recruiting Blogswap is a FREE service of job board CollegeRecruiter.com but used by a wide variety of career sites. Some of the career sites want to attract candidates with years of experience, with certain skills, or from certain geographic areas. Other career sites which participate want to attract human resource professionals, hiring managers, or others on the employer side of the desk. But all of them use the Recruiting Blogswap to increase the number of targeted visitors to their site and they don’t pay a dime to do so.

If you have career-related articles, then sign up with the Recruiting Blogswap as an author. Your articles will automatically include a byline that will tell the readers about your organization and will link to your web site. Those articles will run on recruiting blogs which have signed up to publish articles written by you and other authors. When your articles run on those other sites, they will link to your site and that link will be in close proximity to the description of your organization in your byline. Google and the other search engines will infer from the proximity of the link to those keywords that your site is a good source for those who are searching for that information so your site will be moved up in the search engine results when people search on those keywords.

If you want to add more content to your site, then sign up with the Recruiting Blogswap as a publisher. You’ll receive articles from authors and may publish them on your site. If you choose not to, then the articles that you’re sent will be re-assigned to the next publisher in line. You’re never under an obligation to publish an article so you don’t have to worry about being asked to run an article that will be of no interest to your visitors. And by adding more articles to your site, when Google, Yahoo, and the other search engines find those articles, they’ll include them in their search results and will direct your most desired visitors to your site when they search for that type of content. Also, when you add more pages to your site, the search engines rank all of your pages higher as sites with more pages tend to be more likely to have the information being searched for.

Sound good? I thought so. What’s the catch? None. All of the participants get something of value. The authors get links back to their sites from the web sites of the publishers so the web sites of the authors appear higher in the search engine results. The publishers get more pages so their web sites appear higher in the search engines results. CollegeRecruiter.com gets a very short blurb in each article and archives a copy of each article on our site so our site appears higher in the search engine results.

Want to sign up as an author, publisher, or both? Great. Go to http://www.RecruitingBlogswap.com and get started today.

Please let me know if I may be of any additional assistance. I am here to help.

Hello Michael! Long time no see, how ya been doing? Glad to see you are doing well. I am so glad that I have located you after all these decades. The last time was at 110 Bowery on my way up to my first duty station at Plattsburgh. Do you remember me from San Antonio? I guess I was using the name Bradford then. After all, some guy tried talking you into pimping me to them for the night. I wonder if we could have really rolled him. I like to believe we were made of finer stuff. I have thought of you many times over the years, fondly. You are welcome to return my salutations, please. larkspur_adalinda@yahoo.com Peace,Babe - Laura
