When I launched Corn on the Job in July of 2009, I was unemployed, and in my own way, starting a job search of my own. To be perfectly honest, the end result was more of a life search to understand who I was, where I’ve been, and most importantly, where I should be. Much has come from that search, ultimately leading to the formation and launch of Bad Rhino Social Media, where I spend a great deal of my time these days.
In Corn on the Job’s (nearly) three year existence, I’ve been inspired by countless career experts. Through email, online, phone, and in-person conversations, each of the experts I’ve interacted with pushed me to be a better blogger for my audience here on Corn on the Job. For this reason, I wanted to create a list to highlight my personal favorite career experts.
