5.0 out of 5 stars No one should look for a job without reading this book. September 9, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have always sought ways to get an edge on my job competition. My shelves are filled with books about landing a great job. But none truly offers advice the way Mr. Mehta does. His book is written in simple language that's easy to understand and avoids confusing buzz words. Narinder has years of experience in executive recruitment, and he generously shares his knowledge and insights with you. I have ordered the book for my niece who's in her junior year at college and a friend who is seeking work (as he says, "along with 17 million others.") Forget the other books. This is the one that will help you define your goals and objectives so you can move into a great job...and career. It also whispers some unknown secrets and keys to success...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Resourceful Guide to Career Success November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The strength of Mehta's guide comes from its relevance to today's market: Mehta features components of the job search that have always been important, but he has updated them for use in a contemporary context. "Social Media and the Job Search" is a section of the book we found to be particularly strategic as it not only lends advice on how to use popular social media for advancing your career, but also focuses on properly conducting yourself within these sites so as to project the best professional image - two objectives we highlight in our own work at Corporate Class Inc.

As Mehta explains throughout the book, networking is as important in the job search as a strong cover letter and a refined resume. Now, with social media sites that lead to countless avenues of connections, networking has grown significantly in form and dimension. According to Mehta, "your online presence is a crucial component of your resume." Not only is it becoming more common for potential employers to search candidates online, but also an "online presence" is a beneficial tool for actively making connections with colleagues and professionals in your field of interest.

One suggestion that Mehta offers for establishing yourself professionally online is to start a blog. Once you have a few posts published, it will reveal your writing skills and your ability to sustain a project or a set of ideas. We agree with Mehta's recommendation to choose one particular theme so that you are not rambling or that your blog is not just an "unstructured journal of your thoughts." Similarly, it is advantageous to monitor not only any personal information that you publish, but also to keep tabs on the language and content of your posts and any following comments from readers.
