Welcome to a special Success Strategies channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio — with Peter Clayton reporting. I’m thrilled to have back on the show today Penelope Trunk, the author of Brazen Careerist and founder of the Brazen Careerist web site, a career management tool for next-generation professionals. Brazen Careerist has over 40,000 active members.
“Brazen Careerist exists to give everyone an opportunity to build and nurture a network of trusted peers. Other professional sites allow you to display a network, but not necessarily build one. Microblogging resources like Twitter can tell you who you should network with, but it’s tough to build a real relationship on 140 character missives. And social networks like Facebook are great for having a conversation, but it’s a conversation that employers don’t want to hear. ”
