Helpful Book on a Critical Process April 14 2009
By JEB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a career counselor I was delighted to read Orville's book as it's clear, easy to follow and demystifies networking. One of his points is that these need to be "comfortable" conversations--not cold calling. He also keeps the focus on networking clear: reaching insiders and hiring managers. My advice is read this book and follow these steps--you won't regret it!

drawn out, could have said it in 50 pages or less June 1 2009
By SV - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really tried to finish this book. However, it ran long on points basically repeating the same thing over and over and thus my mind wandered.

There are a few interesting concepts in the book, I really was under the impression that you have to be an extroverted salesperson to really network, which is debunked in the book. It sounds like you should treat networking for a job similarly to day to day interactions with people when you are seeking the answer to a question or help with something. Sounds rather low key actually. I don't know how true it is, or if it's something that's common sense, but it was a confidence builder since I'm one of those types that is rather introverted and hates to network. However, I haven't tested out this concept yet.

I think what really got me was at the end of every chapter is his "journal" which attempt to portray real life examples of what he's discussing in the chapter. They are so painfully trite that I was cringing. The sample conversations for networking are also pretty bad.

He also does a fair amount of promoing his first book, which I found off-putting.

This book could have been helpful if it wasn't so drawn out, had better real life examples, and didn't hype his first book so much.

If you're curious about reading or skimming over the book I recommend you borrow it from a friend, or the local public library. I'm so put off by the author's writing that I couldn't pay for it.

Career Consultant and Trainer - High Recommendation! July 7 2009
By L. Gayle Bridgeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had the opportunity to meet Orville Pierson and hear him speak on the topic of networking. He takes the mystery out of networking - by showing that networking is simply "talking to people with a goal in mind!" He illustrates in his book that each persons' existing network is really much larger than we realize - we just need to think about it a little differently. This is a great book for those currently in career transition, and those who think they may be soon! A definite ADD to your library! Gayle Bridgeman, Career Consultant and Trainer, [...]

Great networking book and job hunting reference Sept. 22 2009
By Former Job Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
With all the books on the market concerning the job hunt in general, resume prep, etc. this one hits the key part of the whole job hunt-networking. I was laid off last spring and used it as my job hunting bible. I'm working now, and though (obvously) there were a lot of factors in my sucessful job hunt, this book was a huge help. There's no higher complement I could pay then that.
