If you’re like me, you can easily get sucked into the magical world of Pinterest, spending hours on end pinning recipes, outfit ideas, home decorating tips and cute pictures of animals. As avid Pinterest pinners like to say, I could easily make a career out of pinning, if only that were a job.
While “full-time pinner” may not be a job (yet), being on Pinterest can help you move your real career forward – or aid in finding a new one.
