Job Searching with Social Media For Dummies Book Giveaway

Today we’re giving away five copies of Joshua Waldman’s latest edition of his book, Job Searching with Social Media For Dummies.  I previously read and reviewed the first edition but I am pleased to see that Joshua has updated the book with the latest in social media since it is constantly changing!

LinkedIn has retired several features over the last two years making many old strategies irrelevant (such as the question and answer section that LinkedIn used to have).  Joshua also reviews in depth Facebook’s introduction of “Graph Search” which he says is now the most important social network to use in one’s career because you can find just about anyone working anywhere using Graph search.

Joshua also lists 10 ways that the job search has evolved in the 21st century including that google has now become your new resume, social proof is a must, relationships first and resumes second, resumes and cover letters aren’t read on paper anymore and everyone has a personal brand.  He also advises that to stay up to date on social media changes, you must listen to podcasts and read social media news sites.  And remember not to make the mistakes that many other people are making by being inconsistent, failing to think of what hiring managers need to see, taking before giving and ignoring face-to-face networking.

This would be a great book for your bookshelf.  Good luck!
