Amazon.com Review

Get online and prosper, urges Aliza Sherman, founder of Cybergrrl Inc. and Webgrrls International. Her book Cybergrrl at Work is packed with instructive anecdotes of successful wired women and step-by-step suggestions and strategies for women to take full advantage of business and career opportunities on the Internet. "Your best job tools are a modem, mouse and computer monitor," says Sherman, who illustrates her premise with standout chapters on how to find a job online, including where to find the 10 best job sites and the differences between paper and online résumés. Sherman's smart section on "miracle résumés"--critiquing eight traditional résumés and giving them a digital twist--captures the essence of the brave new world of e-recruiting. Other topics include using a telecommuting career to balance work and family, creating a Web site, starting a new media business, and growing your business on the Internet. Sherman capably translates the success of several dozen women into strategies for leveraging career success via the Internet. Her bright ideas transcend sexual politics, offering advice that is not for women only. --Barbara Mackoff

The experiences shared by many women in the book serve as great encouragement for any woman interested in giving it a try, who want to broaden their prospects or who want to get some new ideas on how to further advance their existing business. It's easy reading and fun -- buy it for yourself or somone else as a gift!!

Terrific book -- both interesting to read (especially the stories of how other women used the web to become successful) and helpful (containing tips on how you can do it too.) It was also very practical, especially (at least for me)the section on growing your business on the Internet. I've read other books in this area, which were very dry, but this was a fast read and a very helpful one as well. I highly recommended this book -- and you don't have to be a female to enjoy it.

This book is an excellent guide for those who are new to the Internet and for those who are veterans -- everyone will find something new and useful. Sherman is a clear and practical writer with lots of experience to back up her recommendations. I would recommend this book to any woman.

This is a book that I recommend for anyone interested in communications and getting ahead in their career. I've applied two things from this book-- resume postings and studying websites in my fields-- and already feel progress in my knowledge and outreach as a writer & publicist.
