How I Got My Job: Searching Job Boards

Some people ask me how I found my current job as Community Manager for PicApp, and the reality is more simple than they realize. The job was posted on Darren Rowse’s Problogger Job Board. I saw the job, and thought that I would be a good fit for it, and so I applied.

The rest is history. If you want to be a full time blogger or make money online, I recommend keeping an eye on the various job boards in your field. There are more than a few out there and they sometimes have great golden nuggets hidden in their listings.

I couldn’t believe that a non-blogging job was listed on the job board, but when you consider that they were looking for someone experienced in the field of blogging and someone who could relate to bloggers, it was the perfect place for them to advertise.

If you can’t find a blogging related job that suits your interests and pays you a “reasonable” wage, then you aren’t looking hard enough.

Here are a few great resources:
Problogger Job Board
WordPress Jobs
Freelance Writing Gigs
Blogger Jobs

It never hurts to apply. The worst they can say is “no” and then you are no worse off than when you applied.

    I found my job as Community Manager at Blog Talk Radio on Craigslist of all places. A lot of people look down their noses at Craigslist but there are very cool opportunities to be found. After I learned you were hired as PicApp’s Community Manager I wondered if there were other opportunities out there beyond the usual blogging gigs. I found one listed for a Blogger and Community Manger and sent in my details.

    You never know until you apply.

    Nice post and thanksf or the link love.
