After over 2 months of attracting submissions and showing them on site, the 2008 JobMob Guest Blogging Contest is finally over. Time to announce the grand prize winner…
This year's contest had 10 participants. Each guest post shared a unique story and perspective, with the whole list covering many different aspects of job hunting in Israel or in general. Each writer put in the time and effort to bring you ideas in the hopes of helping you, your friends and family. I'd like to thank each and every one of them for a job well done and I hope they'll come back next summer as well.
