Book Description

LinkedInterwork - The job seeker advice you need.

in`ter`work´ing
n. The act of working together; interweaving

Linkedin`ter`work´ing
n. The act of working together on LinkedIn

If you are either seeking work or looking for a new position, you need to get the most out of LinkedIn to find the job you are after. This book will help you to "interwork" to get you "in to work" as quickly and stress free as possible.

I was disappointed with the content of some of the other books available, which were out-dated, country specific, full of jargon, poorly presented and in some cases a bit boring too. As well as the LinkedIn specifics, I've included in this book other hints and tips that will help your job search, from refreshing your CV or Resume to setting up a personal website. You only get one opportunity to make a first impression so make the most of it.

Many people who join LinkedIn just copy and paste their CV or Resume onto a LinkedIn profile in a few minutes and then leave it untouched. Follow the advice in this book to get promoted, connected and into a new job, supported by the author's own LinkedIn group. All this for less than the price of a glossy magazine or a frothy coffee.

One reader's recommendation:

"This book is very logical, written in "easy-speak" not "computer-geek" and covers everything you need to know about selling yourself to a prospective employer. It shows you, with screen prints, how to do every task and explains the ins and outs of the LinkedIn website. Best of all, it explains how to make the most of yourself, and get that new job!!"

Discover inside:

How to improve your personal branding:
- Make a positive first impression
- Create and maintain a clean internet presence
- Customise your LinkedIn address to linkedin.com/yourname

How to create a rock solid CV or Resume:
- Improve the clarity and presentation
- Age proof your CV as "40 is the new 50"
- Avoid common errors

How to create a killer LinkedIn profile:
- Maximise the effectiveness of four key parts of a LinkedIn profile
- Avoid the common errors on LinkedIn profiles
- Encourage endorsements and recommendations to best showcase your skills and experience

Building your LinkedIn network:
- Fully utilise first, second and third level LinkedIn connections
- Network through LinkedIn Groups
- Find people through advanced search techniques
- Reach out to people through daily updates
- Sell yourself!

Job hunting:
- Find Recruiters
- Connect to a specific person
- Find out which organisations are hiring
- Make best use of the LinkedIn jobs pages
- Use Twitter and other networking sites to search for jobs
- Tailor your profile if you're currently unemployed
- Keep your job search secret from a current employer

Extras:
- Are LinkedIn premium memberships worth the money?
- Suggested groups to join to quickly build your network
- Handy hints and tips

About the Author

I am an experienced senior manager having worked in both private business and government sectors, with extensive experience of managing change. This has led me to do a lot of recruiting over the years and when it comes to CVs and job applications I've seen the good, bad and downright ugly. If you follow the advice in my Linkedinterwork book, your next application will definitely be in the good category, hopefully up against a bunch of bad and uglies. I live in Bedfordshire in the UK (40 miles / 75km north of London if your geography's on par with mine), am a member of Mensa; a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and a Member of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply. I'm also a Member of the Institute of Customer Service and have appeared in their Journal more than once as a "Customer Service Pioneer." I hope you enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it. You are welcome to join my LinkedIn group LinkedInterwork where you'll find useful job-hunting information and articles as well as some friendly folk to swap ideas with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended Linkedin guide 2 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The outline of the book is clear and easy to understand for all levels of IT users. The instructions given for profile adjustment is simple to apply and results in a more streamlined and attractive profile which hopefully will prove to be as attractive to prospective employers. The advice given was concise and pertinent and meant that I could adapt my profile to suit my needs. Overall I felt that the book served its purpose well in a way that was painless and entertaining at times, I would recommend it to anyone looking for insight into creating their Linkedin profile and gaining a better understanding of its uses.

Enjoyed the book.

Having spent the past 10 years using LI I would class myself as reasonably competent. Chris has distilled his know how
into an easy read that will help any one interested in tuning up there profiles or heading out on a job search.

One nice aspect is that he's suggested out areas to look at is you are on the look for a job which helps.

So, I would recommend picking this up or alternatively spending 5+ years getting your head round Linked In.... a no brainer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and spot on for the job seeker 25 Sept. 2013
By Dandayo
Format:Kindle Edition
I recently got this material via Smashwords and found it to be very informative. You know as a job seeker, you do not want to do any time taking search for any extra piece of information to help your job search because job hunting in itself has taken most of the time. This material is spot on and gives a good guide on how to navigate your way on LinkedIn. It shows you some salient parts of LinkedIn that can give your job search an effective raise. I found it useful...So, I recommend this material to job seekers that want to improve their effectiveness on LinkedIn.
