Brazen Careerist, an online community known as the career center for Generation Y, recently revamped its site and make it more socially interactive. It started as a network of 50 beta bloggers and has grown to over 350 20-something, Gen-Y bloggers (I joined in May 2008). First off, congrats to the BC team for their hard work and how far they’ve gone and how far they’ll continue moving forward.
What is amazing about the site/community is the commonality shared among the entrepreneurial members. Each member brings unique aspects of their young, yet accomplished careers. For example, I met Allie, a public relations and social media analyst who had a great podcast interview with Blagica, an Internet Marketing consultant. Earlier today, I had a brief phone conversation with Clara, a recent MBA grad and we bounced ideas on social media marketing. We exchanged over twitter. Additionally, I wrote a post on experience and political careers and referenced Jen who now writes for change.org on Women’s Rights. This goes on and on and on.
I look forward to future opportunities and doors opening by remaining active in the community.
