Adviser on the Edge

Spatial perspectives on career guidance and development

Welcome to the (new) blog!


One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to sort out my digital profile. Over the last couple of years I have found it increasingly difficult to manage my online life. As well as this blog I have my website, linkedin, twitter, university research profile, and have a profile on a few other websites. I also have a personal Facebook page and a long-neglected Instagram page.

At times I have felt a bit overwhelmed with the amount of information out there – both information about me that I need to manage, and information being shared on social media and elsewhere that I feel I need to stay on top of. I have also, at times, felt a need to withdraw from the melee of social media.

This year as I move into the next stage of my career (with my PhD now nearing completion) I want to remedy this. I am aiming to take a more proactive stance with my social media, to use it more effectively for what it is great at – connecting with others around the world and sharing ideas. I have started to update my various profiles, and this includes re-engaging with this blog. Over the next few weeks I intend to produce a series of blogs relating to the activities and publications I have engaged with over the last few years, pulling out the key points particularly as they relate to career development and career guidance in smaller and island communities. I hope these blogs prove useful to my readers and provide a summary of my recent work as well as kickstarting a more regular blogging habit!
