I love good copy. I am so fond of good copy that I wish I could write it, and write it well. So it goes without saying, given my undying love and affection for my friends over at Brazen Careerist – that I am totally loving their new tagline/slogan/mantra -
“Where ideas are your resume”
It’s beautiful. It reflects everything that the community (and I) stand for. Coming straight out of college without a lot of experience to put down on paper, our ideas are our resumes. I realized this was true when I met Penelope last year. She said I had to create the experiences for myself, because on your resume, it’s not about whether or not you were paid, it’s about the experiences you have, and how those experiences make you valuable to whoever you’re trying to work with.
This is brilliant. Kudos to Penelope, the Ryans, and the other members of the Brazen team. I’m honored to be a part of the community, and it has been super-fun watching you guys grow over the past year. Congratulations on a gorgeous interface that will help facilitate the fantastic conversations that are already happening on your platform.
I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. I don’t know where I’d be today if I hadn’t started blogging, and if I hadn’t started blogging with Brazen (per Penelope’s suggestion). That’s another post in itself – this one’s about you.
Congratulations team Brazen. And if you haven’t been already, check it out here.
