Trees for the Yard and GardenBook - 2003
In today's world, the Internet is proving to be the most important resource people can use to network and put their name out in the open. When searching for a person on Google, what does - and doesn't - show up in the search results can be either rewarding or damaging to an individual. Digital dirt- whatever is associated with a person's name in search features - can help to highlight an individual's past experiences, skills, and talents. Yet links to negative websites, unflattering pictures, or bad associations can hinder a person from achieving the opportunities they seek.Six Figure Networking aims to advise readers about the advantages of various social media tools, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, as a way of networking yourself to the world. If the information isn't out there, no one is going to be able to find it. But the information has to be positive in order to be advantageous for building connections, and not anything that will deter people from associating with you.So what if you haven't spent the last year honing a great online image and building a community of followers ready to recommend you at a moment's notice? Is it too late? No. Franzoni and Greenspan first provide readers a fast overview of the social media landscape from large public open spaces to a host of highly effective niche markets for your message. Then they show you how to use the tools -- and avoid the social gaffes -- both obvious and at least three you haven't considered. And, they provide real-life examples of successful job campaigns including how to express yourself in different social outlets. Finally, a plan for personal branding that will get you through your current search and provide some career insurance in future years.
