Circumlocutions

Traversing the gap between “blog” and “blawg” since 2008

The other kind of Social Networking

I know what you’re thinking, “Blogging, twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, indenti.ca, whatever other newfangled applications with mangled English for names are all the rage now….”

The truth is, I spent about an hour yesterday evening walking around my school’s “Career Exploration Fair”. Employees from large law firms, public interest groups and government agencies set up tables handing out info and tschotchkes to curious law students.

It was not a recruitment opportunity. As a result, I received some solid answers to the types of frank questions I probably would not have asked. It was also an educational experience in immediate networking; unfortunately much less enjoyable (personally) than the online variety and something I expect I’ll be doing a lot more of.
