Intern Blogs Verboten

Has anyone told you to promote your career with a blog? It makes sense that green young people haven't yet learned what should be kept as private, internal company business. So, companies are adopting policies that lay it out clearly. Employees are "discouraged from publicly discussing work-related matters" confidential or not. Still, the Society for Human Resources Management claims that only 8 % of HR departments have blogging policies. And, reports of cool, maverick bloggers who snitch about work antics only to have their blogs turned into books and movies are encouraging others to do the same. Source: New York Times, Anna Bahney.
