Career PivotTop 10 Shared Posts

So what were the Top 10 shared posts in 2012?

There were over 30,000 visits to this website in 2012. It is not a huge e-commerce site but has been fairly successful since the Career Pivot brand was launched in February of this year.

Even I was surprised when I added everything up. These were the posts that readers shared with their friends via Social Media (LinkedIn, FaceBook, Twitter or Google+) or E-mail.

What were the common themes?

  • Lack of passion in careers
  • Retirement or the lack of one’s ability to retire as planned
  • LinkedIn
  • Job Search

I have been completely surprised by the number of times that my post “What if you are not passionate about anything?” is found but equally surprised at how often it is then shared.

I was not surprised by the frequency that retirement posts were shared. This is a topic that is near and dear to just about every Baby Boomer.

Did any of these surprise you? If so, which one?
