I wrote a book called I’m on LinkedIn – Now What??? It has been blogged about, and commented on. Here’s what I know about:
Jason Alba has established himself as a well-known and widely respected expert in the employment arena. His success in establishing himself and promoting his extraordinary career toolset JibberJobber.com prove that he knows what heâ€™s talking about. His understanding of personal branding and networking come together in his new book about using LinkedIn.com. Authoritative and insightful, â€œLinkedIn For Youâ€ is a great primer for â€œnewbies,â€ yet itâ€™s comprehensive enough to offer something of value to even the most seasoned LinkedIn users.
Jasonâ€™s Personal Brand is consistent in each project he works on, especially in Iâ€™m on LinkedIn – Now What? Throughout this book he narrows down exactly what LinkedIn SHOULD be used for, so that readers donâ€™t confuse it with other social networks. You will encounter information on how to set up your profile, network through groups and proper etiquette to use as you grow your LinkedIn database. After reading and learning from the expert and his experiences, Iâ€™m more inclined to use LinkedIn as a professional networking device. Jasonâ€™s thoughtful and honest viewpoint on LinkedIn will teach everyone from youthful professionals to experienced entrepreneurs how to succeed through LinkedIn.

Jason Alba has taken the guess work out of linked in. He has captured the very quintessence of what linked in is and what it is not. This book takes the guess work out of how to utilize linked in and is unquestionably a friendly userâ€™s guide! This book is not simply for beginners but for those who are serious about professional and personal networking. Kudos Jason!Lori Russel Boilard

Iâ€™m on LinkedIn – Now What??? provides a useful guide for all those looking to better utilize the power of LinkedIn. As Jason writes, LinkedIn is NOT the silver bullet of networking sites; such a site does not exist, and this book does not try to make that point. What this book does incredibly well is show how you CAN use the tool to your advantage; to make connections, to help others, and ultimately, to help yourself! 2 handshakes WAY UP for this great book!Phil Gerbyshak

You don’t have to be a full time social networker to use linkedIn as a connection making tool and Jason Alba lays this out point by point in “I’m on LinkedIn — Now What???” where he explains exactly how to use LinkedIn in a way that works for you. A book that I’ve long needed to explain just what LinkedIn is and isn’t to countless friends and clients without buzzwords or hype, it’s high on my list of recommendations.Susan Reynolds
