In these uncertain times, new graduates and the newly unemployed need to manage their online images to find employment. This outstanding, easy-to-read guide shows millennial job seekers how to promote themselves both online and offline via Schawbel's concept of personal branding, or "how we market ourselves to others." Although he did not create the concept, Schawbel has successfully used e-marketing strategies, including many web 2.0 social networking technologies, such as blogs, wikis, and podcasts, to advance his career. He has also established himself as an authority in assisting others with these goals through his four-step method, i.e., discovering, creating, communicating, and maintaining individuals' personal brands. This enjoyable read is enhanced by gray-shaded informational sidebars, a glossary, and many testimonials about the success of Schawbel's method. Well suited to both students and the general public, this timely title is also recommended for human resource and recruiting professionals.—Caroline Geck, Lib.
