A lot of headlines and class time and conversations have been devoted to the power of social networking, from its effect on privacy to ways in which we participate in news creation and consumption. Not surprisingly, this week’s featured title looks at its impact on locating employment.
The Schepps, writers of numerous technology-focused books, have come out with their latest, sharing tips and tricks on securing gainful employment through social networking sites. While the emphasis is placed on job searching, the authors take you through the steps of the mechanics setting up accounts, as well as the types of information to include on profiles. Personally, I love the “What are YOU going to tweet about?’ chapter (just make sure it’s under 140 characters!). All in all, the writing duo provide solid advice on using social networks for professional purposes.
