Miriam approached me through LinkedIn and asked me if I was willing to be interviewed for the book. I had no idea at the time what a well written guide this was for people looking to use social networking to increase visibility for themselves or their business. An easy read with practical ideas on improving how you use social media.

Miriam Salpeter has written a wonderfully clear, concise tome on getting ahead in the job search market using the Internet and social networking. I've known her as an online career coach for some time now, and I'm thrilled to see that she's put down her no-nonsense, easy-to-grasp philosophy into a simple paperback guide.

Let's face it, the first thing a company will do is Google you. They'll check your social presence, troll your Facebook page, then possibly request you as a friend.

I recommend choosing one form of social media (Twitter, blogging, LinkedIn)that you hope to use more effectively and following Saltpeter's advice about how to optimize your use rather than trying to take in all of the information in one giant chunk. This book is meant to be used as an inst ...more

This book is a great resource for anyone interested in expanding their online presence. I utilized Salpeter's expertise on making connections through LinkedIn and Twitter, as well as her advice to job-seekers and was able to land my dream job! I appreciated the extensive information on creating and marketing your profile through blogging. There is also a very helpful list of annotated social media networking sites in the back of the book.

The Ivy Leagues are a superficial vanity device designed to boost confidence in many of us; but distinguishing yourself through real, tangible accomplishment is a validated, objective measure of your skills and experience. And of course social networking allow an individual to separate from the organization and pursue their very own goals.
