One part LinkedIn, one part FriendFeed, Brazen Careerist is not an entirely new community for professional networking, I’ve only been lagging on joining for probably a year now.
Just like Twitter you can follow and be followed, and just like FriendFeed you can aggregate some of your social media and web activity into one feed. The premise of joining is sharing content with other career-minded individuals.
I really just like being exposed to the great range of professionals and students on the site. Not just the marketing and PR folks that find me through topic or association, though I love you guys too! Brazen Careerist seems less segregated and confined relative to the connection-based relationships on LinkedIn. Also, there is less emphasis on your title, where you work or who might know, and more value is drawn from what you tweet, blog, or comment on.
So, let’s connect and share content. I promise, it will be worth the 15 minutes taken to properly sync up and populate your profile.
