Summary

How to Find a Job in the 21st Century? (And a job that doesn't actually suck.) It's a question every job seeker has asked themselves. (Usually in the midst of filling out their 253rd Monster job application.) Oh sure there was a time when following the usual old boring tips on how to find a job were sufficient - you know: create a resume, network, fill out a bunch of applications until you get carpal tunnel. But these days the competition is way too stiff. The economy way too sucky. And the task of making an impression on a total stranger far too difficult. These days to truly learn how to find a job you love, and one that doesn't simply crush your soul and help you with your car payment, you've got to be smart. You've got to be focused. You've got to use all the modern, kick-ass, job-seeking social-media goodness at your disposal. And that's what this book is all about. Because I've learned firsthand the power of social media for job seekers.
First as an applicant - nobody has filled out more Career Builder applications than I have - and then as a hiring manager. And I've seen how social media for the job seeker isn't about how many Twitter followers, or how many "likes" you got on your latest Facebook update. It's about using social media to make you an unstoppable reservoir expert awesomeness in your field... ...and help convince employers that you are a) competent b) trustworthy and c) not a psychotic crazy person. (That last one is more important than you'd think.) Now this doesn't mean you shouldn't continue to follow the same tips on how to find a job online that you've come across in the past. But it's my hope that this audiobook will help you go beyond the usual cliched advice and give you some tangible, real suggestions on how to break through the gatekeepers and get your resume (and your face) in front of decision makers who can help you find a job.

No help at all!

Any additional comments?

Really? I think a child must have written this book! Seriously, this was NO HELP at all! Utter waste of money, all the "advice" was so so obvious.

Good book for Job Search, but not any Job

Any additional comments?

Good book for Job Search, but more suitable for people looking for Job in publishing or media, copy-writing, Brand management, etc.
