A different approach on the 'looking for a job' theme - recommended!,
This review is from: How to Get Your Ideal Job (Using LinkedIn, Social Media and the Internet) (Kindle Edition)
I found this book really interesting and refreshing to get a new perspective on my work situation. So many of the other 'get a job' books I've written are talking about a time long ago where sending off CVs and applying for job adverts was the best thing you could do, but I've tried this approach and seem to be getting nowhere. Whether it's because there are so many applicants now I don't know. But this book talks about the interviews and experience the authors have had actually speaking with recruiters and headhunters. The fact that these people are searching for their candidates on line seems to be quite a new phenomenon and there are some really practical step by step guidelines for making sure what they find when they look you up means that you get the job.
I enjoyed the practical nature of much of the content. There was a fair bit of theory, but mostly it's things you can do NOW and actions to take rather than just more of the same, talking about CVs and cover letters all over again. Highly recommended for those who have tried with the CV thing and had no luck or who want to stand out from the crowd.
