More Future Ready Libraries

29Mar11

My Slaw post got reposted on the SLA Future Ready 365 blog! Brenda and I have been blogging for a couple of years, and this is the first time that one of our posts was picked up in full. That’s the power of social media in getting yourself known.

I’ve also started a new job at a smaller law firm. That was also the result of being known in my community. Your reputation, be it online or in person, is so important to career success no matter what you do. If you want to grow in your career, it’s important that you get your name known by the people who make decisions, not just by volunteering, but actually committing to whatever causes interest you. Don’t do something just because it will look good on your resume, do it because you care and you will be rewarded. Maybe not immediately, but at some point in the future you will be able to say “I got that because I did this”.

Go out there and do good things!
