Content creation is the process of identifying a topic you care about, deciding which form you want the content to take, formalizing your strategy (keyword or otherwise), and then actually producing it. Many software engineers also create content: - YouTube videos (Rahul Pandey, Steve Huynh) - Writing articles (Alex Chiou, Michael Lin) - Producing podcasts (Lex Fridman, All In). It's never been easier to impact many people while also building a brand.
I live in India, I aspire to work in a product-based company in the United States as a Senior Software Engineer.
There are a couple of approaches that I know of so I will jot them down:
If there is a pathway or any other resources to follow please help.
I see a lot of emphasis on being :linkedin: famous these days. While a lot of it is valuable content, I wonder what's the motivation behind it? What's in it for very senior engineers?
I post every question anonymously here on Taro so that my company is not revealed.
I fear if any of my posts are viewed by my colleague on LinkedIn they will start looking at me from a different perspective.
I'm an Android Engineer and I recently did a course on AI for Business Leaders from Udacity I feared sharing it on LinkedIn because my team will start judging me.
I don't even know whether sharing a post will make any deep difference, but I want to shape my career around intelligent systems and reach out to a similar audience in the coming years.
I want to create my own blog to share my career experiences and love for full-stack technologies. This would probably evolve into a newsletter of some kind but that would be months or even years down the road.
I am worried about the possible consequences of my colleagues or manager discovering my blog posts on LinkedIn and Twitter. Are there any downsides to starting this initiative or things I should watch out for?
I would love to hear from folks who have experience making content! Thank you!!
