"Yate's take is fresh: he reframes social media as a chance to give other people what they want, rather than the navel-gazing, attention-seeking platform we often use it as." --Recruiter.com
"Martin Yate bridges the gap between strategic job hunting processes and social networking tools.... Of course, there's an abundance of social networking advice online, but if it isn't written by someone skilled in job search, what good is it? Yate is concise but thorough in explaining the merits.... If you've been hesitant to promote your job search message on social media, or unsure how to harness the potential, this is a good book for you." --St. Paul Pioneer Press, "Working Strategies" column
