Welcome to Career Clinic! 

Consult with Authors of the Best New Career Books!

Career Clinic features the best of
newly published career-related books, magazine articles, and survey results—capsulized for in periodic blogs contributed by the authors themselves. Comments and questions will be answered by the authors as their schedules permit.

Today we inaugurate Career Clinic with author Brad Schepp, who with wife Debra wrote How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ (McGraw-Hill). Brad and Debra have done a marvelous job of walking a LinkedIn newcomer through the site’s various features and benefits. I liken it to New York Times columnist David Pogue’s dissection of Windows XP some time ago: Missing Manual—The Book that Should Have Been in the Box.

I believe both the book and the column will be of immense value to all LinkedIn members, as well as those thinking of joining. I was a passive LinkedIn member myself for a few years. This book alone opened my eyes to the potential of membership. We hope you agree—but find out for yourself!
