Thursday, May 28, 2009


The wikiHow site is a trove of how-to articles on a wide range of subjects:
  • Arts & Entertainment

  • Cars & Other Vehicles

  • Computers & Electronics

  • Education & Communications

  • Family Life

  • Finance & Business

  • Food & Entertaining

  • Health

  • Hobbies & Crafts

  • Holidays & Traditions

  • Home & Garden

  • Personal Care & Style

  • Pets & Animals

  • Philosophy & Religion

  • Relationships

  • Sports & Fitness

  • Travel

  • Work World

  • wikiHow (e.g., how to contribute)

  • Youth

  • Other
I find wikiHow useful for browsing for ideas on how to handle various situations, such as preparing for a behavioral interview (one of the items cited below), and for advice that reflects "on the ground" experience.

The articles vary in quality, as you would expect, but they are also easy to scan, so you can quickly decide what you want to pay attention to, and what you want to ignore.

I've listed below some examples of articles I found useful, taken from the Education & Communication, Finance & Business, and Work World categories.
