Career Posts Round-Up

At the beginning of the year, I asked my readers what THEY wanted me to blog about in 2013 and much of the feedback was around career aspects…How to make the shift from Employee to Consultant, developing relationships with recruiters, and how the experienced professional can be competitive in the job market.  I had some great input from the folks at Bridge Technical Talent, as well as industry experts Kendra Andrews and Jeff Lipschultz.  Below is a consolidated post with links to those posts, as well as a few extra at the bottom.
