25 terrific entries and almost 400K pageviews later, the 5th Annual JobMob Guest Blogging Contest is over. Winners' announcement coming this week Over US$5000 in prizes will be awarded this Wednesday, September 21st. Among the many prizes about to make a lot of people happy, there's the new Judges' Choice prize, the overall favorite guest post as voted by the contest judges, regardless of how well the guest post performed in competition for the other prizes. However, since the grand prizes are so grand, I've decided that their winning guest posts won't be eligible for the Judges' Choice prize, only the other 22 entries will be. This is one way I've tried to spread the winnings around to the many contestants, in recognition of their efforts.

After I recently got engaged (to the perfect woman), I started thinking about the two subjects, and realized that both dating and job hunting actually have a lot in common. Think about it: you often use the same tools for finding a job and finding a date, and both first dates and job interviews are basically all about your marketing skills – with one you are marketing your professional side, and with the other your personal side. So I decided to compare these two processes, and share my findings.

What's happening as we enter the final leg of the contest. Mission accomplished! All goals going to be achieved My goals for this year's contest were: 1) Get more sponsors and prizes than ever before - DONE With over US$5000 in prizes to be won, this year's contest was over twice the value as last year's. 2) Get more entries than ever before - DONE For the first time ever, the contest is full. There were 25 spots, and there are now 25 guests posts that have either been published or will be. I also had to turn away more entries than ever before, either because they didn't follow the rules, or they arrived after the 25 spots had been filled.
