Google guru Matt Cutts has posted a letter he wrote to a young journalist friend back in 2007.
It seems like most of the advice still applies, although there’s admittedly more of a sense of urgency now than there was then.
I don’t expect that sense of urgency to be waning any time soon.
So the first thing I’d recommend is to grab a domain name and work on burnishing your personal reputation online. It’s definitely not the case that everyone needs a blog, but having one place that acts as a face to the world can really help. There’s room for a resume/CV, but also for some writing samples that show off your abilities.
Sounds familiar, huh?
