    To be honest, I was a bit disappointed in "How to Use the Internet
    to Get Your Next Job." But that's mainly due to the fact that I'm
    quite experienced on the Internet, so much of what the book recommended,
    I'm already doing. I was hoping for some new powerful insights, I guess.
    But on its own, if you're not a big tech person, the book is a fantastic
    resource, offering a wide variety of steps to take when job hunting. It
    explains things cleanly, easily and even describes various words and
    phrases regularly that you may've heard of before, but never really knew
    what they meant. I did enjoy the many Case Studies throughout the book,
    which offered specific insights from various employers in terms of what
    they look for in an applicant. The appendixes were also really great
    resources, as they listed tons of websites for job hunting, as well as
    finding great samples for help with resumes and cover letters. If you're
    a complete newbie to job hunting or not too skilled on the Internet
    (other than sending emails), this book's a great resource for you. If
    you're already quite versed, however, you'll most likely find the bulk
    of the read repetitive, yet supportive to what you're already doing.

    Janet Nagle’s How to Use the Internet to Get Your Next Job

    Janet Nagle’s How to Use the Internet to Get Your Next Job, could not have come at a better time. With the job loss on the rise and the state of our current markets--everybody is fighting for any employment position available. Nagle’s book teaches you how to use man’s second best friend, the internet, to find a good paying job.

    The book assumes you are new to the World Wide Web phenomenon and explains its directions in layman's terms and offers solid advice and resources for job hunting. Some of the breakdown of information can be unnecessary at times, (Does anyone not know how to perform a web search?), but it is mostly appreciative. Anyone clueless about the internet will learn everything they need to know from this book and more, like creating a positive reputation online for future employers to take notice and how to avoid scams when applying for a job. Some of the advice from Nagle’s book can also be applied to traditional job searching, like how to conduct yourself during an interview. There are also short essays from people who have used the internet to find their jobs and companies explaining their expectations in an employee. These sections are helpful, but often repeat the same message of the chapters.

    Overall, How to Use the Internet to Get Your Next Job, is successful in doing just that. It is a helpful guide for anyone wanting to find their next job on the internet.

    How to Use the Internet to Get Your Next Job explains the value

    How to Use the Internet to Get Your Next Job explains the value of using the Internet in the job search of the 21st Century. Face-to-face contact has been replaced by an online recruitment and application process. Employers now post jobs on the company’s website or through various online employment agencies, and job candidates complete applications, and submit resumes and cover letters electronically. For those who may not be familiar with the Internet, the book explains basic Internet lingo and describes the process of setting up an email account. It also offers tips on how to maximize time spent searching for jobs online, and contains advice on how to create an impressive cover letter and resume. Even though the book primarily covers Internet usage to get a job, it also includes valuable information on how to dress and prepare for the face-to face interview, and the appendices list several pages of online employment agencies. This is a definitive manual for those who wish to find a job using the Internet.

    “How to Use the Internet to Get Your Next Job” by Ja

    “How to Use the Internet to Get Your Next Job” by Janet Nagle is the reference book for persons looking for employment in the early 21st Century. Nagle’s book is a “how to” guide for job seekers with either no knowledge or a passing knowledge of how to use the Internet. Nagle makes a strong case for the position that potential jobs are advertised on the Internet either through company websites or websites that specialize in connecting employment candidates with jobs that meet their levels of experience. Gone are the days of the newspaper want ads and visiting employment agencies in order to fill out job applications. Nagle goes into great detail regarding terms used on the Internet, as well as what software applications should be used to build resumes and cover letters for those applications. Persons who already possess technical knowledge regarding word processing and accessing the Internet will find the book tedious. Otherwise, it is a good starting point for most people.

    Times have changed -- even job searching. This book is a BIG help!

    If you are looking for a job for the first time in 10 years or more, you need to read this book. Online portfolio? I'd have never thought of making one. If you think job hunting online is going to be easy, this book is quick to remind you that technology has made job hunting more competitive than ever.

    One of the most helpful aspects of this book is its "Internet Lingo" section. Knowing these terms will make you more competitive in the job market.

    This book also shows how to do corporate research to determine the companies for which you would like to work. It's these little tidbits of information that will make a non-tech person like myself seem more competitive in the job market. I think it would also be a good resource for students who are just entering the work place, too. It will make them think about how they use social media outlets and how they can better use them to advance in their careers.
