Saw Jeff Jarvis quoting Neil Macintosh in the Guardian as saying that, “there’s no excuse for a student journalist who wants to work online not to have”, a blog. Not sure we are quite there yet at Edelman with blogs only, but a candidate for a job would raise a few eyebrows if they did not have a fairly developed social media appetite and a profile of some kind. I’m sure now this will get me into trouble with HR or employees who don’t, but for me, it’s pretty much in the same category as admitting you don’t read newspapers.
