I created two solutions, actually printing out the article or saving it as a PDF in a special file on my laptop using printfriendly.com . It's super easy to use and you save trees, so that's a plus. Here are four reasons why you should start a career folder too!
1.Keep Information for Later: Instead of trying to remember everything you read ever about having your first job, you can keep the information for later to read before big events! It's been really helpful for me because I don't feel as rushed googling everything I can think of before a big event.
2. Writing Inspiration: As I try to write more career inspired posts, these articles give me a great deal of inspiration! My reactions to them, what I they are missing or even a "spin-off" topic is just a few of the thoughts I can write about.
3. Help Others: Sometimes I'll have a friend who wants advice or help with something, but honestly I just can't remember anything good. So I'll go back into my files and find a URL to email or text to them so they can read it.
4.Find Favorite Writers: When looking back into my folders, I often find a blogger or professional who's articles I connect with the most. I take the time to find them on Twitter in order to read more of their content and even potentially connect.
What would you put in your career folder? Do you already do this? What is your system?
