I was recently interviewed about my book. It was a pleasure to talk about why social networking is key to career success.
We talked about how social networking helps reverse the process of job searching from a push process to a pull process, how to use LinkedIn well and what to do if you are overwhelmed by all of the social media platforms.

It’s so gratifying to hear from people who enjoy my book. Many have added reviews on Amazon, others tweet about the book, and some write about it on their blogs. It made my day yesterday to learn Social Networking for Career Success was designated a July “Best in Books” by the Calgary Public Library, via a review written by Samantha Schellenberg, Alberta Employment & Immigration Career Development Workshop Facilitator, Designer and Presenter and Director, ChoiceWorks Rehabilitation Solutions Ltd.
