#ENTRY-LEVELTweet is a concise, insightful guide to managing your career for pending and recent graduates. Heather Huhman, a national careers columnist for the Examiner.com, HR insider, and President of Come Recommended (a site which matches employees and employers who have great recommendations), provides practical advice on how to get started.
The guide, written entirely in tweets of 140 characters or less, provides comprehensive jump start steps on how to manage your career--from figuring out what skills you'd like to use on the job to the application process and success strategies after you nail your interview and start your new gig.
I worked in college career centers for over ten years before venturing out on my own. When you meet with hundreds of students, you get a lot of frequently asked questions. This book answers two of the top five questions I received: "How do I get started?" and "What Steps Should I Take to Be Successful?"
From a step-by-step guide on how to develop your resume to a brief overview of how you can use social media to attract employers, this book keeps up with major trends in the career field without being overwhelming. It's on my short list of book recommendations for current students, recent grads, and members of the class of 2010. Check it out.
