This week, we officially launched The Working Chronicles blog. Here’s why I think you’ll want to join our community.
The Working Chronicles has a team of seasoned “chroniclers” and their editors who are interviewing people from all backgrounds and all parts of the country to capture true stories of working life in 21st century America. New interviews will be published each week, along with other interesting articles about work.
Yes, we intend to bring you stories about people with fascinating and unusual careers. But we’ll also talk to people with “regular jobs,” people who are starting their careers or ending them, and people who are searching for new directions in work. We’ve discovered is that no one is ordinary; everyone’s story has something important to teach us.
If you go to the site today, you’ll find interviews with a Maine Lobsterman, an insurance claims rep coping with job loss, and a 21st century etiquette consultant. (And you thought good manners were a thing of the past.)
On the blog, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, we’ll give a voice to working people and hopefully inspire a widespread discussion about the current landscape of work in the U.S. Subscribe to our blog and comment on any stories you find compelling. “Like” us on Facebook at The Working Chronicles; feel free to Comment/Like/Share our status updates, and post links or ideas of your own on our wall. Join us on Twitter, @workingchron, and check out our group on LinkedIn.
The Working Chronicles is a unique opportunity to understand what working people from all walks of life are doing, thinking, and planning right now. We’re excited about our stories but even more interested in hearing back from our readers—their reactions, questions, and ideas. I really hope you’ll help us build community and inspire a great conversation.
