Social media is not just for kids anymore; it is playing a key role in job searches. LinkedIn is one of the more popular networking sites with millions of users. Groups based on interest are set up and have a mechanism to post job openings or to have people post requests for jobs. Even with the job postings it is still the connections that help the most. Being an active user of LinkedIn or some of the other social media sites is a critical piece in a job search. Carol Mon will teach you: How to Create a LinkedIn profile, how to search and make connections, and how to find job openings and information on companies.
