Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"This is an important book and a must-read for all job seekers who don't want to be left behind yesterday's hill. About.com job search guide Alison Doyle unwraps the mysteries of Internet job search, the transformative technology that increasingly determines who gets what job. Living in a super-competitive job market, it's now crystal clear that the decade-old strategy of zipping-off-resumes-to-job boards-and-waiting-for-a-call isn't working the way it once did. In 'Internet Your Way to a New Job', Alison rounds up and explains in plain words all the new tools (which, like Blackberry resumes, seem to have been invented last week). Her topics range from branding yourself and smarter online networking, to confidential job search and trendspotting (what's likely to be invented next week). Millenial or Boomer, trust Alison to make understanding the new tools easy for you."
Joyce Lain Kennedy, Syndicated careers columnist and author of 'Job Interviews For Dummies, 3rd Edition'

"It is very timely and refreshing to see Alison Doyle capture the true power of career networking and the urgent priority of developing an online presence to prosper in today's Internet-driven world! Her play-by-play professional brand building techniques and optimization tactics put success within everyone's reach! With more than 64 million active Facebook users today and more than 17 million professional LinkedIn profiles online, it is not surprising that employers are turning to these leading networks as a top recruitment source, and Alison has done a brilliant job of not only identifying these 'must-use' job seeker networks, but she has provided the online tools to take your career to the next level! This is a supurb resource and practical guide for every active or passive job seeker!"
Julie Craft, VP, Simply Hired, Adjunct Professor & Career Consultant

"Job seekers are competing against thousands of others who are taking full advantage of the speed and efficiency of online job searches. Alison Doyle clearly explains the steps, resources and tools necessary to land a job in today's workplace. This will help anyone looking for a new job!"
Paul Forster, CEO, Indeed.com

"Alison Doyle gets it. With the development of new Web 2.0 tools, the rules of job searching have dramatically changed. Internet Your Way to a New Job goes beyond just showing you how to hunt for jobs. It shows you how to be the hunted."
Rob McGovern, CEO of Jobfox and author of Bring Your "A" Game.

First of all, its hard to believe that this book costs $20 - there's not enough information here to justify the price tag. Alright, this book was just released so the price might change within some time and what won't change is this...

Plenty of it is common sense, unfortunately. If you use your head, some of this stuff should not be new to you. Yes, there are online resources mentioned throughout the book, but the only new one to me is JibberJobber.

Maybe its good for beginners, but its not very useful if you ever went through an online search before.

Alison Doyle is a tremendous resource in the world of job searching, in general. Now, Alison takes her knowledge of job searching to a whole new level and shares her expertise in the world of online job searching. She covers everything a job searcher needs to know to utilize the online world in his or her job search. From building a professional brand - what you want potential employers to find out about you, when they search for your name online - to making contact through social and professional networking sites, Alison lays out the best steps, tips, tactics, and tools.

Want to speed up your job search? Alison tells you the best places to find jobs and the best methods for searching. Looking passively for a new opportunity? Alison tells you the steps to take to make yourself available to potential employers. And, if all of this isn't enough, Alison covers all of the online professional communication required for a successful job search. She even looks to the future, and discusses the trends she sees in online job searching going forward. Never heard of a job fair in Second Life? You need this book. In fact, "Internet Your Way to a New Job" is so thorough and downright useful, you won't need any other resource at all to fuel your online job search.

Alison Doyle has expertly crafted this guidebook for effective use of the internet as a job search tool. This text is written in an engaging, plain language style which covers the essentials in a concise and coherent manner. Alison has gone far beyond the traditional treatment of online resources by covering cutting edge topics like brand building on the net, online networking and protecting personal privacy.

As a professional in the career development field with 25 years of experience, I will keep this useful resource desk side as a handy reference. I strongly recommend this book both for the net savvy to ratchet up their game and for net novices to gain a clear and simple guide to tapping the net as a resource.

Format: Paperback
This book gives a number of examples of how to conduct your job search using all the new Internet tools that are constantly being developed.

Do a Google search on yourself to see what the Internet says about you. If there are drunken or racy photos of you on Facebook, for instance, restrict their availability or delete them, now. You can count on a potential employer doing the same search.

Learn how to create an online presence. If you are seeking any kind of professional position, join LinkedIn and create a profile. Next, sign up on Facebook, but leave the bells and whistles off your page; for professional networking, keep it simple. The number of networking sites is rapidly growing; pick a couple of sites for your profile, and stick with them.

Before you start your job search, be very clear about the sort of job you are seeking, and make sure your resume targets that type of job. Start a new email account just for job searching. Store everything in a separate folder on your computer. Start an Excel spreadsheet that includes the company name, contact person and the date the resume was sent. If you find an interesting opening, apply immediately. Check your email, and your telephone, several times a day for messages. If you get an expression of interest, or request to call for an interview, respond immediately. Obviously, if you are job searching while employed, do not use your company email or telephone; be very discreet about telling colleagues you are job searching. No doubt, word will reach your supervisor.

It's not enough to post a couple of online profiles, monitor a couple of the major job sites, and expect the jobs to come to you; you have to constantly go and find them.
