Optimize Your LinkedIn Presence, an eBook Review

Chances are, you have a Facebook account. Chances are, you have a Twitter account. And you know how to use them both pretty effectively, and to their fullest potential. Chances are, you have a LinkedIn account too. And chances are, you’re not using it to it’s fullest potential. You’re not making the most of your professional networking potential. In a trying, difficult job market, you need to maximize every advantage and tool at your disposal. And LinkedIn can be an invaluable tool if you just know how to make the most of it.

On most social media, the obvious emphasis is on “social”. Interacting casually, being friendly, personable, and entertaining is enough. But that doesn’t necessarily carry over as well to LinkedIn, and this book helps you understand as much. On LinkedIn, you’re putting yourself out there, YOU are the commodity, YOU are what people are looking for. And you need to make the most of the opportunity, when it comes knocking. Sometimes, you have only a few precious seconds to grab the attention of a potential professional connection. This book will help you maximize those seconds.

Sometimes, one word will make the difference between getting noticed and blending in with the crowd. Do you know what one of those words are? This book will show you. Can you network ON a network of groups? This book will show you how. So if you’re going to make the most of LinkedIn, you’ll need the help that’s in this book. And therein lies it’s biggest drawback. While it’s a brave new world out there for job seekers, the narrow focus of this book means it’s going to target a very select audience, probably skewing slightly older, who feel intimidated by new digital media frontiers. So while it’s a decent easy read, I’m not sure if it’s going to be for everyone. I have a LinkedIn account and didn’t realize how I’d been misusing it until I read this book. But if you’re using LinkedIn, and you need LinkedIn, you need to make sure you get the most out of it, and this book will do that.

Sentey LS-2214 30w 4-Port USB High Speed Wall Charger

Sentey-Logo

The hits just keep on coming here with Sentey. I’m a fan of yet another of their products, and once again it’s a product you smack yourself on the side of the head and say “Why, oh why, did I not have one of these before?!”. This time, it’s a 4-Port USB wall charger. It’s happened to you. Trying to squeeze a bunch of little proprietary charging cubes into one wall socket. Who gets priority? His phone? Her phone? The tablet? The camera? Can I get just enough juice to make this one text, this one call, this one email, take one pic??? Madness, says I.

Now you can stop the madness and just plug your stuff in. All your stuff. All their stuff. And no one gets left in the cold, juiceless. Sentey has even put variable outputs into the plugs, with two 5V/2A USB outlets and two 5v/1A USB outlets. All four are high speed charging ports, not trickle chargers. It has a blue LED light to let you know it’s getting power, and comes with built-in overvoltage, over current and short circuit protections. And it automatically stops charging when the device is full, so there’s no overcharging concerns!

Now I see you sitting there and wondering “Yeah, but how much do they want for this little miracle device?”. Less than $10 will bring peace to your household. For $9.99 you never have to play favorites with your family’s devices again. You even get a cool little microfiber pouch to take it with you on the go if the need arises! At under 9 ounces, I doubt you’d even know you were carrying it! If I had one complaint, it would be with orientation of the wall plug and the ports. I solved this issue with an angled triple tap, but out of the box it’s not going to be an unobtrusive device because of it’s distance from the wall. But that is a very minor gripe from a picky gal who doesn’t want things sticking 4+ inches off the wall. It more than makes up for that with clearing up the rat’s nest of little cubes and wires I had running everywhere. I may even pick up a couple more for other rooms in the house, or even for friends and family. This one is a must-buy.
