Foreseeing, at the end of 2008, that “2009 will be an unprecedented time for workers in the US, with many people losing their jobs through no fault of their own”, social media guru Chris Brogan wrote his free e-book, Using the Social Web to Find Work offering some ideas to put to use and share with others.
The e-book includes thoughts and advice on:
- Writing Your LinkedIn Profile for Your Future
- Making Your LinkedIn Profile Work For You
- A Template for Building a Small Powerful Network
- Social Media for Your Career
- Starting Points for Online Presence
- Threading the Social Needle
In closing, Chris writes in the e-book:
“Nothing is guaranteed. Your mileage may vary. You might find different results in different places than I’ve mentioned. But overall, the premise sticks – these tools permit for human contact, and that’s what drives new business opportunities. Instead of hunting for jobs, get started now by building networks ahead of time so that you’re helping others long before you need help yourself.”
