The Value of Sharing 


When I first saw this page it looked like a mess to me. A hodgepodge of links loosely categorized and approximating the steps of a job hunt or the sections in a career plan. As I investigated further and clicked a few links, I began to see the method to the madness. It was a diamond in the rough, waiting for a skilled artisan like me to see the facets of the shimmering prize hidden beneath the rubble. The links took me to a treasure trove of knowledge, tips and best practices I could use to advance my career. That’s when I realized the value of sharing. That’s when I began to pay it forward and share my links with the knowledge community every day.

What is a Knowledge Community?


Formerly known as a discourse community and having evolved from forums and web forums, knowledge communities are now often referred to as a community of practice or virtual community of practice. Knowledge communities nurture and facilitate ongoing relationships and a Knowledge Ecosystem where ideas are exchanged on an ongoing basis. Knowledge value is generated (derived, realized) during the transactional nature of the exchange.



PR 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

If you take one step in faith, the Lord will work it out!

Finding the Best Career Objective

The purpose of a career objective is to tell the employer what it is that you want to do. The rest of the resume focuses on supporting this objective and convincing the employer of your ability to do it.
