    • LinkedIn is where it’s at
      • Online Profile (aka Resume)
      • Search for people you know and invite them to be a connection
      • View other people’s connections to see if you know others
      • Give/get professional recommendations, visible to all users
      • Connect to groups that share common interests
      • Keep up with what’s going on with your connections
    • The Power of LinkedIn
      • Recruiters WILL find you
      • Third party sites use LinkedIn (SimplyHired.com)
      • Not as blatant as posting your resume on Monster.com
