    1. I was laid off from an adminstrative/marketing job in June. The pain of that layoff still lingers. Fortunately, I was able to find another position part-time and sometimes get lucky and get more hours per diem, but that's another story entirely. I need a full time job with health benefits ASAP for the security of my entire family. Enough stress, eh? Fortunately this book came along at a time when I really need it.First, a few things about the book format and text: I previously avoided "Dummies" [...]

    2. this book has been invaluable in helping me establish my online presence and "personal brand". Clear, concise and incredibly in depth. Since using this book my LinkedIn profile has had a major increase in "hits", and searching my name in Google brings me up in the first 5 links. It's up to date and on my desk at all times. Joshua's website, careerenlightenment , has also been helpful. Thanks Joshua!

    3. Useful Linkedin info, which is what I was seeking. I am hoping to improve my weak linkedin profile as it may give me the edge I need to get a second or even a full time job in the my area.

    4. I have to give this book three stars because I have strong inclinations pulling me to both extremes of the star spectrum here.On one side, I have not enough great things to say about this book. Waldman gives you the behind the scenes look at how HR recruiters and hiring managers use the Internet and social media. He points you to the most popular sites they use so you can see what they see. He shows you how to assess your online presence from their perspective, and he provides lots of great ways [...]

    5. Everyone says that using social media is the contemporary way to find a job. This book attempts to painlessly take the reader through the process.First, do an online search of your own name to see what the Internet says about you. If there are any 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. If an online search comes up empty, the author explains how to fix it. Why should a [...]

    6. Social media has really revolutionized the way we now search for a job. It used to be that we sent out piles of resumes hoping to convince a potential employer that they should do an interview. Then, in the interview, we could open up a bit about our passions and goals while showing the interviewer how we could benefit their company. With social media, potential employers can simple Google your name to get a picture of who you are and if you’d fit with their company. You could have the best re [...]

    7. The market on job titles has grown as the unemployment number has shot up. When I picked this title off of my library's shelf, there were close to two hundred other titles in the same section marked "career". As I skimmed through Waldman's book, I found relatively similar advice that I previously discovered in other career self help titles. The sections included resumes, cover letter, finding what you want to do, actually applying for work, ect. What I did love about this title was the different [...]

    8. Overall a very good manual to helping you maximize social media in the job search. I already knew a lot of this given my heavy presence on social media and background in career services, but I think it is a worthwhile read for newbies and experienced social media users alike. It covers a lot of the basics with establishing accounts, but then moves more into personal branding and establishing a strong online reputation. Once you have that, you can really leverage it to network and tap into the hi [...]

    9. This book’s focus really spoke to me and I just had to read it. My current job search has been connected to social media like never before and my interest in both is at an all-time high at the moment. While this book covered the basics that I already knew, it also provided a LOT of in-depth information and tidbits that were incredibly useful. I reviewed this book more indepth on my professional blog. wp/p2ofKQ-63

    10. I was actually surprised that I got considerable insight out of this book.Keep in mind that some of the resources listed in the book are outdated- some platforms no longer exist, others have updated their interfaces multiple times since the publishing of the book.I don't really see the value of a video resume (at least for my field), but I did appreciate the idea of an online CV.

    11. Extremely helpful for job seekers, but I use it to keep my social media profiles up to date even though I'm not looking for a job! Joshua knows the ins and outs of how to build your personal brand through social media. Love it!

    12. Read certain sections of this to help with a computers and job search course I'm teaching. I'm not a fan of the "for Dummies" style, in general, but there's a lot of good stuff here for people that are looking at how to use sites like twitter and linkedin for job-searching purposes.

    13. I've read a number of these types of books for work, and this one was informative without being a rehash of other books or articles.
