Cupertino, CA (PRWeb) May 10, 2011 – Since 2007, when the first edition of his book came out in print, Jason Alba has been acknowledged as the LinkedIn expert—a trusted and experienced guide who mentors professionals in leveraging LinkedIn to keep their business and career networks active and healthy. A third edition—within three years—of his bestselling book simply reflects and validates the demand for Jason's knowledge and the esteem in which he is held among professional circles.
Whether you are a novice LinkedIn member, a veteran, or somewhere in the middle, this third edition of I'm on LinkedIn--Now What??? has been written to help you get the most out of the hugely popular business networking site. Jason walks you through the basics while bringing you up to speed on LinkedIn's latest changes, newest additions and greatest features.
While Jason may be an evangelist, he wears no rose-tinted glasses. Unlike many who try to sell LinkedIn almost as a silver bullet, Jason is quick to honestly point out its shortcomings, quirks and limitations. By doing so, he ensures that your expectations are realistic and that you are aware of the role that LinkedIn plays within your larger networking initiatives. If you're a professional interested in advancing your career or business by exploring opportunities that come through building relationships, then this latest edition of I'm on LinkedIn--Now What??? is certainly for you!
Praise for this new edition keeps pouring in from all corners of the web. Billie Sucher, author and career transition consultant says, "Jason's book is an easy-to-read, well-written, step-by-step tutorial for the novice, or for the person who's already linked in. He reveals his mastery, once again, at making the complex simple, just as he did with his invention of JibberJobber." Senior marketing professional David Dalka notes that "Jason has written a highly practical guide to LinkedIn that will quickly allow a new user to understand and utilize LinkedIn. It's also a great guide to the LinkedIn's hidden gems—finding high quality people through endorsements and off LinkedIn content such as Groups and identifying thought leaders through blogs linked from profiles."
About Bestselling Author Jason Alba:
Jason Alba is thejob seeker and networking mentor and advocate. Laid off in January 2006, he could hardly find a job interview in spite of his strong professional credentials. Undeterred, he decided to use the opportunity to step back and take a high-level view of the job search process and to fully understand all the resources available for job searches. Within a few months he had developed enough insight to design a personal job search tool, JibberJobber.com, which helps professionals manage career and job search activities in the same way a salesman manages prospects and customer data. In the course of his explorations, Jason also made time to understand the immense opportunities presented by LinkedIn. Today, he has built for himself a bestselling career, by mentoring thousands in maximizing the potential of their business and career networks, with smart and savvy use of LinkedIn and related tools.
