Strange Decision by the NY Times

I just caught up on some reading that I’ve neglected. One writer I like is Marci Alboher. She authors a blog for the NY Times called Shifting Careers. Since my blog is about work, I tend to check out other blogs that are similar in nature. So it surprised me when I caught up with my reading to see that her blog is being discontinued. I know the newspaper industry isn’t doing well, but this is an online blog about something that is very prevalent right now – employment.

I’m astonished at this decision by the NY Times. Perhaps the plan is to diversify this topic a little for the paper. That is probably a better strategy overall. But I’m not confident in that assumption.

Here is an excerpt from Alboher’s last post. It is dead on:

Not surprisingly,
a remarkable number of people reminded me that career growth generally
happens out of disappointments like this. 

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
