A (New) Slash Community Grows Online

I just discovered yet another online hangout for slashes, a page on Squidoo called “Slash” Careers: The Man of Many Hats. It’s run by Aaron Klieber, whom I don’t know (yet), but I’m thrilled to see another place pulling together resources for all things slash.

A good out-of-office message should both provide the necessary information and protect you from a barrage of unnecessary message when you return to the office.


Slash "/" Careers on Facebook

I have joined the growing numbers of authors on Facebook! If you’re already a Facebook member, check out the conversation that is getting started on my new Slash “/” Careers group, where people in all stages of slash careers are invited to share stories, tips, and questions. If you’re not on Facebook, consider checking it out. I was surprised to see how many people I know are already on Facebook, and it’s been fun/interesting connecting with people in a new way.

I’m hoping the the Facebook page turns into a rich discussion of slash living that so many people have been asking me for.

I am also looking for a handful of savvy slashes from the Facebook group to feature on the Heymarci Blog. If you have a website, blog, portfolio, resume, or video that showcases your “slash” identity in an innovative way, please consider sharing it on the Slash “/” Careers group discussion board – or just stop by for a little slash inspiration. I hope to see you there!
