Get online and prosper, urges Aliza Sherman, founder of Cybergrrl Inc. and Webgrrls International. Her book Cybergrrl at Work is packed with instructive anecdotes of successful wired women and step-by-step suggestions and strategies for women to take full advantage of business and career opportunities on the Internet. "Your best job tools are a modem, mouse and computer monitor," says Sherman, who illustrates her premise with standout chapters on how to find a job online, including where to find the 10 best job sites and the differences between paper and online résumés. Sherman's smart section on "miracle résumés"--critiquing eight traditional résumés and giving them a digital twist--captures the essence of the brave new world of e-recruiting. Other topics include using a telecommuting career to balance work and family, creating a Web site, starting a new media business, and growing your business on the Internet. Sherman capably translates the success of several dozen women into strategies for leveraging career success via the Internet. Her bright ideas transcend sexual politics, offering advice that is not for women only. --Barbara Mackoff (Amazon.com)
Aliza gives an overview of the book:
This book came out as the Internet bubble was bursting so my publisher decided to remove any mention of "Internet" from the book cover. But this book is all about how women can leverage the Internet into more pay, better jobs or to start businesses. Filled with over 100 personal anecdotes from women who used the Internet to better their professional lives.
