A particular emphasis is given to the use of new technologies in networking, chiefly the tools made available by Web2.0; within this environment, you may find a Facebook page (Networking – Your Professional Survival Guide) that works as an interactive space between the reader and the author and provides access to new resources in multiple formats.
