Job seekers frequently write to ask me how they can use the social networking sites Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter to get job leads, to job search, and to get career advice.
All of the top social networks - LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter - are free and easy to join, and can be used to get job search advice and tips, to network, and to connect with career and job search experts, companies that are hiring, and other job seekers.
LinkedIn is the top professional networking site and everyone who is job hunting should have a LinkedIn profile and should be actively using LinkedIn to job search and network. Here's how to get started on LinkedIn. Then join the About Job Search LinkedIn Group to connect with career experts and hiring managers, get job leads, and to network with contacts who can help with your job search.
