Wired for Work: Get a Job FAST using LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter by Steve Weber

Released: 2010

Wired for Work is perfect for any job-hunter trying to establish themselves (and their online presence) in today's job market. The author touches base on the most important piece of getting hired: effective online social networking including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and even MySpace.

Before Weber jumps into how to use all of these websites as tools in searching for a job, he explains to us why this method is incredibly important. The majority of employers today will conduct web searches on your name as part of their background check. Weber stresses the do's and don'ts in regards to maintaining your personal profiles on these networking sites and gives pointers on how to professionally market yourself.

Weber then provides us with step-by-step details on how to set up profiles on each of the aforementioned websites, as well as additional tools embedded within these sites to help land us the perfect job and connections.

Steve Weber is right on the mark with all the information he provides us in Wired for Work. This guide is very crucial to people who are new to online social networking and need to secure a job, and really brings to light what job searching is all about, right here and right now! Because the majority of Wired for Work is a step-by-step how-to manual, you may not need to purchase it if you are already familiar with how to use LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace; however it is super easy and helpful if you need guidance.

It's absolutely terrible that people now have to go to such an extreme extent to separate their personal and professional lives just to cater to employees in today's market. Where can the line be drawn? It just can't anymore. We can't be free outside of the workplace and privacy is nearly non-existent. Facebook is continually in the media on a weekly basis about their constant changes to privacy settings, which is occurring to benefit marketing specific types of people based on their settings. It's an ugly world out there for employees and job-seekers these days.
