ATLANTA, April 2005 ? Gayle Oliver, President/CEO of Execum?, was recently selected by ajcjobs.com to be one of nine bloggers on BlogBreak, a new feature on the ajcjobs.com Web site.
Oliver?s entries appear every other week, and thus far have covered leveraging your own skills and ?human capital? and ?Two Sides to Every Coin? ? how your weaknesses can be strengths. Future topics could include how many pages your resume should be, a discussion on cover letters and the value of follow up.
Niketa Patel, Online Producer, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, said they launched BlogBreak as a way to reach new readers. ?We wanted to provide them with advice from experts, allow them to write in comments, and feel a bond. We wanted to establish a connection in a very interactive form,? she said.
Patel said the panelists represent a diverse group of experts, with Oliver serving as the resume expert. Patel added that she chose Oliver because of a story featuring Execum? that ran in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution last November.
?I found the Execum? Web site, and Gayle?s actual blog, and it was very good. I thought she would bring a nice quality to what we are trying to do,? Patel said. ?We?re very excited to have Gayle on board ? she?s not only an expert, but she also has such a high level of commitment to the project.?
Oliver said she was honored to be chosen to participate in BlogBreak. ?My personal mission is to make a difference. I think that most people don?t know how to promote themselves, and self-promotion is the cornerstone of success in your career,? she said. ?I want to educate people, and the blog allows me to reach more people, and a potentially younger audience, with my acquired knowledge.?
