Top Posts of 2014 Focus on Careers, Branding


As I approach the ninth year of this blog, it’s time again to look back at the most widely read posts of the past year.

In 2014, top topics shifted from job search tips to how to enhance a personal brand, expand your network and succeed in a new job. While many are seeking their next career opportunities, more individuals are working in public relations now than ever before. This bodes well for the future of the profession, and underscores why we must continue to grow our skills, network and gain additional experience.

With nearly two million visits to Culpwrit over the past 12 months, here are the posts that drew the most eyes:

  1. Good Reasons Why You Should Join a Professional Association
  2. Add Social Media to Your Event Networking Strategy 
  3. Very Good Reasons to Join PRSSA, Even if No Chapter Exists on Your Campus
  4. When PR Leadership is Missing In Your Workplace
  5. Program Introduces Young Men to PR Careers

Thanks to those friends who wrote guest posts during the past year. You have made it possible for me publish at least one new article every week over the past eight years. And special thanks to the Culpwrit readers. Your questions and suggestions for blog posts and comments on those posts help shape the focus of this blog. Your regular visits also keep Culpwrit in the top 20 PR blogs on most ranking sites.

Merry Christmas. Happy Hanakkah. Happy Holidays.
