Using Social Network Sites in Your Job Search

Here is an excellent post from Mashable about using social network sites to help in your job search.

Author Dan Schawbel explains:
Some of these sites allow you to craft a resume, while others are networking platforms that contain job listings. By signing up for all ten, you increase your chances of getting a job and decrease the amount of time you’ll spend searching for a new one. Three of the listed sites can be combined with other sites to be more impactful. In addition to joining, creating profiles and searching for jobs, I encourage you to support these sites with either a traditional website or blog, so that you have more to present to employers, in addition to your profile.

Social network sites are the way to find a job today. Foot, phone and paper are things of the past.

Another example of how social network sites are growing up.
