  • Looking forward, social networks lead all otherrecruiting channels for planned investment byemployers as the economy recovers:• 46% of respondents plan to spend more on socialrecruiting in 2010 than 2009• 36% will spend less on job boards• 38% will spend less on third party recruiters andsearch firms
  • Business networking portal--- Linkedin is almost exclusively used for business connections, so use it that way. Show your “Best Self.” Business address book- invite connections, make new connections, join relevant groups, keep all your contacts in one place, you can also export your address books, find out where people work/moved jobs/significant updatesExtended online resume- Linkedin gives you a place to really put a lot of information somewhere for recruiters and interviewers to find; more so than regular, 1 or 2 page resumes. Use the web space to really dig deep into what your previous experience is and what you’re looking for and interested in. Job research tool- Linkedin is also a great portal for Job searching or identifying informational interviewees. More on that later… Place to shine- It also gives you a place to shine! From recommendations to group discussions boards you really have a chance to show just how amazing and knowledgeable you are.
  • How’s it work..Think “6th Degrees of Kevin Bacon” except Linkedin uses 3 degrees and trust me 3 degrees gets you to a whole lot of people
  • Here is screenshot of my homepage.
