For the past 25 years, I have heard that replying to ads is the most ineffective way to find a new job. The age of Monster and other job sites has not really changed that axiom. This book highlights the ways that Internet technologies factor into your job search. While there is still a lot of work involved in networking with people who may be able to assist you, it is certainly easier than it was 5 years ago. If you have not done an active job search in the past 5 years, this is a must read.
My recommendation: read it once without stopping to do all the things the author suggests, then go through the entire book again, doing the parts that interest you the most. There are literally hundreds of tips here, but the good news is that you don't have to do them all at once.

Our Church Library has added this Book to their inventory and are very pleased with it.
This book has 110 pages, 7 chapters and a conclusion. Chapter 6, consisting of 34 pages, addresses LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. The rest of the book does not.
This book may or may not be very good. However, I ordered it believing that it was a full book devoted to using LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter as part of my job search strategy. I wasn't expecting to receive only 34 pages on this subject. Accordingly, I am returning the book. I only gave it a single star because the title on Amazon is misleading and only reflects 34 pages of this book.
