Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door

Some pretty good, practical tips here. It's geared for the MBA crowd, but some of this stuff is relatable for teaching jobs too. It's a decent refresher of how to present yourself in a stand-out, profession manner, without coming across as an automaton. It's a relatively new book too, so there are quite a few good online resources as well as tips on how to maintain a professional digital presence.

I wouldn't use EVERY single tip in the book though. First, a lot of it is too time consuming. Second, a lot of it is too almost-dead-white-guy style - at least for me. Which makes sense, as I'm not an almost dead white guy. Many of us are not, actually.
