Steve Weber has a bright and insightful book out by the title, "Wired For Work." I have been fortunate to move within the workplace and to not only be in the place where I want to be but also gain significant experience in the process. In doing this I have found mentors who influenced me how to improve my resume and improve my skill set when doing an interview. I have even found some great resources for the "job search." However, Steve Weber's new book fills a niche that has been "virtually" ignored. If you have been in the job market for 20 or more years you have been exposed to a mindset that has discouraged non-traditional avenues to the job market. Don't get me wrong, networking and contacting has been strongly encouraged. But social networks through the internet have been viewed unrelated at best perhaps even unprofessional. Utilization of a cell phone in the process would be considered inappropriate outside of responding to a phone call. Yet in "Wired For Work" we have honest, practical discussions about technology and social networking that need to be addressed and explained. From when it is appropriate to utilize technology, to how to establish an internet presence, much is communicated in succinct practical ways. Some people chose to vent through chat and assorted postings. Others build an alter-persona through postings and even personal websites. All of these may suddenly surprise you as your attempt to present yourself as a true professional in the job market. This is some of the practical realities that Steve Weber deals with in his book. He guides you in suggestions on how to identify and start cleaning up your image. Simple steps are shared in how to refine and expand your social networking presence. This is not a large volume designed to impress you the reader with the scholarly nature of the writer. It is a jeep designed to briskly get you through the rough terrain that you may not be comfortable with at first. Yet, in this literary jeep you can begin to identify where you are now, establish a presence and begin building a virtual image that is both professional and a valuable resource in your quest for an improved career position. If you have been curious, perhaps wondering about starting with resources like Linkedin, Facebook or Twitter get this book, get the information and step out and build a positive presence.
