When to look for another job

Does your company ban employee blogs? If so, start looking for another job.

If your company doesn’t have a blog, offer to head up the creation of one. If you are told, “No thanks” then start looking for another job.

Is your company’s blog written by a public relations firm? If so, start looking for another job.

Does your boss tell you to comment positively about your company’s products on other blogs? If so, start looking for another job.

Did your company’s CEO use the lackluster theater success of “Snakes on a Plane” as evidence that bloggers have little influence? If so, start looking for a new job.
