Scot Herrick Links and Blog (and book)

December 17th, 2013

Scott Herrick wrote I’ve Landed My Dream Job – Now What??? (part of my Now What series)

I got a ping from my blog when he linked to one of my favorite posts, and checked out the context.  I really like Scott’s thinking – he  is very purposeful, and very experienced.  I would pretty much listen to anything he said/wrote.  Check him out at Cube Rules.  Here’s his book on Amazon: I’ve Landed My Dream Job–Now What???

JibberJobber Features in Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies (again)

October 30th, 2013

job-searching-with-social-media-for-dummies-bookI got the 2nd Edition of Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies.  JibberJobber moved from page 34 to page 31!  Woot!

Actually, that is coincidental, not by merit.  But here is what Joshua Waldman says:

joshua_waldman_small“My friend and mentor Jason Alba started JibberJobber.com in 2006 and can claim development of the first online job-search platforms. By far, JibberJobber offers jobseekers the most comprehensive set of tools for managing relationships, job searches, and careers.”

Isn’t that cool?  I like “the first”, “By far,” “the most comprehensive”… those have a nice ring to them :)

In the first edition, Joshua listed JobKatch.com and becomed.com in the list of “tools to organize your job search.”  Those are both out of business.  Of the others that are listed in the second edition, I’m guessing that three won’t be around in a year or two.

We’ll be here, though :)

You can check out Joshua’s book here. Kindle version here.

Promote Yourself: Personal branding and career book, and the Tim Ferriss effect

September 5th, 2013

Dan Schawbel finally got his next book out: Promote Yourself.   I don’t have a copy but there is a lot of info you can find in blog posts online (like this one from LinkedIn global spokeswoman Lindsey Pollak).

Dan will be on October’s Ask The Expert call on Oct 1.  Join us here, and send me any questions you have for the call.

Dan has done a masterful job promoting himself.  I’ve watched his career/business blossom over the years. I even shared the stage with him in North Carolina (Charlotte).  It was the one and only time we’ve met in person.

Tim Ferriss tweeted a link to a post Dan wrote:

tim_ferriss_promote_yourselfApparently it took Dan’s website down.  That is a big deal.  I used to crave mentions like hot superstars like that, tweeting and blogging about my stuff… Dan has worked very hard to get the attention he is getting.

I’m guessing this is a personal branding + career smarts + generational stuff (Dan is a big Gen Y advocate) book… if that sounds like your cup of tea, check it out here.

Congratulations, You Are Out of Work (Margaret Meloni): Free Downloads

May 17th, 2013

I had a great call with Margaret Meloni a number of weeks ago.  She does “soft skills” training with professionals and organizations.  As we were talking told me she has a Congratulations You’re Out of Work program.

You can get her free audio and ebook here (scroll down to the bottom).  Oh wait, there is a signup form there.  She said if you don’t want to be on her list, you can download the goodies from this hidden page.  THANK YOU Margaret!  (everyone, send Margaret a thank you, and refer her stuff to project managers!)

I liked what I heard from Margaret because:

  • Some people are out of work because they need to work on their soft skills, 
  • Some people haven’t “needed” to but they have time to work on them now,
  • Some people are having zero success in their job search because of their soft skills.

From her products page you can see she lives in the business world, helping people communicate better.  She has a soft spot for professionals in transition.

Check it out!

Reed Hastings (Netflix) on Company Culture

February 14th, 2013

When I was in the MBA program “culture” was the big buzzword.  Companies that create a strong positive culture are companies where people want to work, and give 1,000%.

Companies with a weak culture have high turnover.

My wife and I were talking about “family culture” a few weeks ago.  Applying “culture” to something like family, neighborhood, etc. is kind of hard if you haven’t been indoctrinated with the concept of culture.

I want to share an amazing 126 slide presentation from Reed.  I know it’s long but this is an amazing slide on culture.  Consider this a “sharpening your saw” exercise, take the time to go through this.  Best presentation on culture that I’ve ever seen. It almost makes me want to go work at Netflix right now.

December 7th, 2012

Want to do better on LinkedIn?  Here’s a free resource from my Canadian buddy, eh, Dave Perry:

The 12 Days of Christmas Job Hunting with LinkedIn

On that page, click the image a little towards the right.  You don’t even have to put your email in or anything – direct access (the file is here… or heck, just click the image right there –>).

On page 20 there’s a link to the JibberJobber Career Management Group.

Maybe next year he’ll do a 12 days for JibberJobber :)

If you don’t know the name, Dave Perry is one of the savviest job search guys I know.  Actually, he’s a recruiter who just happened to write the Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters book.  Awesome guy, and fun to hang out with :)
