    Publisher's Weekly
    "Best Books"
    The New York Times
    "Currently winning our race for most intriguing book title of 2009 is the oxymoronic “Self-Promotion for Introverts” by Nancy Ancowitz (McGraw Hill). The 'how to' book is filled with tips (rehearse is a favorite). The author’s tone is supportive and she does not argue that introverts should become live wires. But what else would you expect from a book whose subtitle is 'the quiet guide to getting ahead'?"
    The Wall Street Journal
    "…showing how quiet people can turn their innate strengths into an advantage when networking."
    ABC News
    "Best Book Gifts"
    Los Angeles Times
    "Whatever's behind your reluctance to speak out for yourself, this is the first book I've seen with serious research on the topic that leads to a new game plan."
    CIO Insight
    "Must-Read Fall Books for IT Execs"
    "Best New Career Books"
    "Offers a solid dose of practical advice—alongside humorous anecdotes.... Ancowitz shows introverts how to take advantage of the unique qualities and strengths they can offer."
    The Independent Consultant
    "There is great value in this book, whether you are promoting your own business or consulting practice, or just want to be sure your talents are recognized within your larger organization."
    Small Business Trends
    "Written by an introvert for introverts."
    Ft. Myers Florida Weekly
    "'Self-Promotion for Introverts' is a primer on doing just that—helping 'quiet sorts' assert themselves by using their inherent tendencies in the most effective ways."
    Women and Leadership Australia
    "Pitched perfectly. Our rating: 10/10."

Uncovering the Hidden Job Market—Free Video

What is the hidden job market and how can you tap into it? Are you sending out a hundred résumés a week and rarely even getting an acknowledgment from an employer—let alone an invitation for an interview? In a recent panel discussion I moderated at New York University we tackled these questions.

First, Brian Tietje, a strategic account executive at Linkedin®, shared the ins and outs of building your professional brand on social media in his opening remarks. He distinguished LinkedIn from the other social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter: “If you’ve got a business problem, you want to build your professional brand, you want to find information about a business, that’s why you come to LinkedIn.” He continued, “So it’s come in, spend 15 minutes, get out and go back to your day.” He also shared that you have five seconds to get someone’s attention on the web.

The panel included Pamela Skillings, a certified career coach and author of Escape from Corporate America; Rose Scalia, vice president and director of human resources at the Corcoran Group; Shawn Slevin, the principal of P3 HR Consulting and founder of Swim Strong Foundation; Missa Goehring, manager of audience development at Vault.com as well as Tietje. In my remarks, I mentioned a book that I learned about on LinkedIn: Unlock the Hidden Job Market, by Duncan Mathison and Martha I. Finney, which is rich with stories, tips, encouragement, and even sample dialogs for job seekers.
