Apparently, Christmas cracker manufacturer Swantex is revamping its seasonal jokes because some of them might be offensive to Essex girls and mothers-in-law.
I thought perhaps we could contribute some career related lightbulb jokes. Hopefully, these will only cause offence to those with absolutely no sense of humour.
I am currently scrambling to get ready for my tutoring role on the AGCAS Advanced Guidance Skills course next week. So, I probably won’t have time to write a post for the next couple of weeks.
Here are a few things to keep you busy in the meantime.
You could look through the archive of previous posts to see if there’s any you missed.
You could think about what topics you would like to see covered here and get in touch with me (just comment on this post or tweet me).
You could even contemplate writing something yourself for this blog. I welcome contributions from anyone with interesting ideas and theoretical tidbits.
Finally, you could mosey on over to LinkedIn and join the Careers Debate group where a number of interesting topics are being discussed right now. (I still have time to contribute to that because I don’t have to do as much reading before I shoot my mouth off!)
You may also like this discussion on the value or otherwise of career planning in the Career Thought Leaders Consortium group.
See you soon.
Check out this interesting book review by Helen Curry at Careers Service 2.0…
A librarian/researcher friend alerted me to this. I thought it deserved a permanent place on this blog.

…without making a fool of yourself
Following the popularity of my post on How to read academic articles…and stay sane, I thought I would try to explore the subject of commenting on blogs. Obviously, I want you to comment on my blog, but this is advice that could relate to any blog or on-line discussion. I’ve come across quite a few guides on the technical aspects of commenting but none that help you with what to put in your comments. This is my attempt to fill that gap. The tips I give could also be applied to making contributions in meetings or other similarly intimidating activities.
Why don’t you comment?
My stats tell me that at least 500 people a week read this blog, but only a few comment. I really value all the people who do comment regularly or just once, but I would like to find out what stops those of you who don’t.
