So you think you have a decent LinkedIn profile? So do 300 million other people.
What matters is how you use it to get yourself hired. This is what separates a good profile from a job-attracting online presence. “How to Find Jobs on LinkedIn” shows you 20 actionable tips you can use tonight to get hired fast. These are more than your typical beginner tips for LinkedIn. Rather, you’ll find creative and cutting-edge ideas not found in any other book or blog. Packed with done-for-you templates you can use to connect with new people and little known techniques for avoiding a paid subscription, this isn’t your typical LinkedIn beginners book! As author of Job Searching with Social Media For Dummies, Joshua Waldman gives you insider help for supercharging your LinkedIn profile and your career.
I strongly recommend this book for those in job search and especially endorse it for those who think they can’t master Linkedin.
This book systematically takes the job seeker through reasonable and “doable” steps for optimizing LinkedIn. Once LinkedIn basic functions have been accessed and a familiarity with the functions is in place, it’s time for the person in career transition to take initiatives that will attract others to their profiles. Mr. Waldman clearly shows how to do that and does so in a way that makes it doable, even for those who describe themselves as non-technical. I share his information, and show this book, in my workshops and with my coaching clients who are making midlife career changes. I feel fortunate to have happened upon this material. —Rita Carey
