In the 10 years since I graduated from high school, advances in technology have changed almost every area of life. Getting a job is no longer just a matter of filing out a paper application and showing up to an interview. An electronic presence is now mandatory and, fortunately, technologies such as LinkedIn, Facebook, personal web sites and professional portfolios make this possible. It occurs to me, though, that these same instant channels of communication and information place a new kind of pressure on their users. Since a person’s achievements and movements are instantly accessible through LinkedIn, for example, some may feel the constant pressure of having new achievements to post and report to the world.
