Check out some of the Pinterest boards we follow here at CareerBuilder.

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.
So many awesome career- and workplace-related pinners and boards exist, so we thought it would be helpful to pull together a list of some of the ones we love to follow here at CareerBuilder.
