A couple days ago, the book, “Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies” by Joshua Waldman arrived in my mailbox. Joshua sent it to me free of charge, provided I post a book review of it on my blog. I was happy to oblige especially since the subject of his book works so perfectly with my blog!
The book is 340 pages and goes into great depth on using Social Media to find a job. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to read the entire book but I did concentrate on the chapters that deal very specifically with LinkedIn.
Chapter 9 is devoted to using LinkedIn to enhance your reputation. I was very happy to see that Joshua is a HUGE proponent of having a strong LinkedIn profile. He talks about concentrating on “The Big Three:”
- Your profile photo
- Your professional headline
- Your profile summary
I absolutely agree that these three sections are the most important of your LinkedIn profile.
Joshua even goes into how to build your LinkedIn network using LION strategies.
Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies by Joshua Waldman is a thorough book and is perfect for the individual who needs an introduction to using Social Media to assist them in their job search.
