Social networking is undoubtedly the single most important tool job seekers have to set themselves apart in today’s tough economy. Unfortunately advice about online social media tools for job seekers can be confusing and is often contradictory.
Authors Brenda Greene and Coleen Byrne interviewed dozens of Fortune 500 hiring pros to uncover the inside secrets to what the best candidates are doing to land top jobs. Writing a book grounded in research, rather than guesswork, readers learn everything they need to know to deploy social networking and get the job they want including how to:
- establish and manage their personal online brand
- network with virtual cohorts
- avoid the online mistakes that get you instantly disqualified
- tap into LinkedIn’s hidden job market
- become an Employee of Choice
- and much more!
Not based on one web site or one person’s opinion, The Web 2.0 Job Finder is the must-have guide for navigating today’s intense job market, and successfully landing not just any job, but the right job.
