"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

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."
