1.0 out of 5 stars About the Kindle Edition May 21 2012
By Francis Sandoval - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Kindle edition of this book is poorly formatted, as though the pages have been hastily copied and put together into Kindle format. The result is that the font size is extremely small, making it a hassle to read. The Kindle edition is, as of right now, a bad product and is not worth the advertised price and also isn't worth the time spent on it. I will only consider reading it if it becomes formatted properly in the future so that the font size is normal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get off your parents' couch and start meeting people! April 20 2012
By Cristina Deptula - Published on
Thom Singer's Some Assembly Required: Networking for Graduates encourages twentysomethings to develop personal and professional relationships with people right where they are. Old neighborhoods, family churches, parents' garage sales, coffee with old high school friends - all opportunities to learn about others and help them out! And the professional connections will develop naturally as a result of authentic relationships where we take the time to do things for others.

This book proves useful because it provides coaching and guidance for networking for those who aren't in environments full of traditional 'networking events' And explains away reasons why people think they can't network in any given environment...good for those who've returned back home after college. And it encourages younger professionals to get beyond themselves and self-expression and to reach out to others...a good fit for those with a social conscience who want their careers and job searches to be real and to mean something beyond self-promotion.

Good, readable book - great for a graduation present!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Advice for Generation Y April 20 2012
By Michael G. Dowding - Published on
As an instructor at the college level, I can confirm: Most new graduates lack a solid grasp of the fundamentals of building and optimizing their professional networks. They believe that a simple TXT or IM is an acceptable alternative to substantive communication. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. Even in the age of social networking, building a true network requires strategy, planning, and techniques. That's precisely what Thom Singer and Anne Brown deliver in this book. Singer is a longtime expert in this important discipline and he's now bringing that talent to help Generation Y as they get ready to enter a difficult economy. It's an excellent, readable resource - and a perfect graduation gift.
4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect guide for the graduate, a must have! Sept. 2 2014
By Sheri Steadman - Published on
Clearly a MUST have book if you are a graduate with the goal of becoming a professional business person and wishing to build solid business relationships. Thom Singer gives full insight into this tell it like it is meets instructional guide. Build your interpersonal skills, learn how to REALLY relate to others and go beyond the mere "acquaintance" level and become that "go to" person you are, but that maybe professional business people don't see. The book focuses on how to make a good first impression, working with mentors/peer groups/advisory boards, the ups and downs of networking. Learn how to build a brand, set networking goals and create a plan. This book will help you to be strategic in reaching your ongoing goals. Get past your fears and face challenges head on. My daughter has applied the principles of this book to her life and she's glad that she did.
