Downfalls: Brazen Careerist is a great networking site. Its community network is expansive however it fails to include networking for Alaskans– as a community member it would be my duty to increase the community outreach for Alaskans– but in regards to my career choice it would not be as beneficial to me as it would for others. It is however a great network to use when or if you wish to re-locate. Not only could you find a career in your field but you can meet members in your area who share your interests.
