Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
