Career: Boost Your Skills and Reputation During Recession Slack-Time

It’s a post I’d rather not have to make, but here’s a reminder of how to use your time valuably when times are tough. Lifehacker is pointing to advice from Seth Godin:

Earn a following and reputation. Use social networking tools to connect to people for no good reason. Post tons of useful answers on discussion boards where your expertise is valued. Build a permission asset in the form of an email newsletter or a fascinating blog that people want to read. Do resume makeovers for 100 friends. Start a neighborhood or industry book group. Don’t go to conventions, earn the right to speak at them.
