I'm a big fan of the book, 48 Days to the Work You Love, I wrote about it in this post about a year ago. I read this book about 2 years ago and ended up in my dream job 6 months later. I believe Dan Miller's system can work in 48 days, but found out today that it can also happen in 48 hours thanks to Social Media. I love hearing Social Media success stories and I'm glad to be a part of this one:
A couple of days ago, my friend Jeff asked me to help his sister find a job. I responded by quickly putting up this post on his business Facebook page and a sending out a similar message on Linkedin.
Less than 48 hours later I received this notification:
In a matter of hours after this message was posted she began receiving many leads which quickly turned into an offer. Obviously this isn't a fool proof method and everyone won't find a job in 48 hours, but you never know. I believe strongly in the power of Social Media and this is yet another story displaying what is possible through these great new tools at our fingertips.
