All new CPGjobs/National Diversity Network Blog is Here-Help us build it
The CPGjobs/Network Diversity Blog Community Blog Is Here!
As most of you already know, CPGjobs has been running one of the most successful groups on LinkedIn, CPGpeople for nearly 10 years. The success of CPGpeople – now over 36,000 members strong – has sent us two very clear messages:
- Professionals in Consumer Packaged Goods have a lot to say – to each other, and to the companies that employ them.
- CPGjobs has developed a strong community within CPG; a community with a unique voice that offers tremendous value to its members.
Here at CPGjobs, we have been engaged in a lively debate over our best approach to expanding our online community and providing a broader venue for CPG professionals and employers alike.
We’ve decided to prioritize our social media strategy and take it to a whole new level – to create a blog that will encompass a variety of topics of interest to both CPG professionals and the companies that employ them.
The new CPGjobs/National Diversity Network blog, will provide an open forum for you to share what you know, express your opinion, and interact with your colleagues on a variety of topics pertinent to the industry. That being said, we want to do more.
Our experience in the social media space has taught us the importance of allowing you – the CPG community – to drive the organic development of the community. To that end, we are extending an open invitation to you to provide us feedback on what you would like to see at the new CPGjobs blog. We are looking for your suggestions regarding:
- General topics
- Industry news feeds
- Career advice / assistance
- Interaction with employers
- Anything else!
We’ll be getting the new blog started, but we’ll be looking to you to provide us with the direction for this new space.
Take a few minutes, post your comments and suggestions. Feel free to post pieces you’ve written for your own blog or website. Share your opinion on what’s going on in your area of specialty or interest. It’s a great way to showcase your experience, and will help start valuable conversations between professionals in the industry.
We’ll be incorporating your feedback into the ongoing development of the CPGjobs/National Diversity Network blog as we continue to build out the site. We are targeting September for a new look and feel for your Blog.
We look forward to seeing you on the new CPGjobs/National Diversity Network blog.
