“We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media. The question is how well we do it!” – Eric Qualman
Social media is the new mechanism to find work. Companies use it. Candidates use it. It is almost a one stop shop where you can find jobs, research a company, and make a connection without leaving the site.

Absolutely! The point isn’t that there aren’t valid jobs on Monster, CareerBuilder, or HotJobs. There are! The point is that when we are looking for a job, we tend to spend 90%-100% of our time while we neglect the other pieces of the job search which can help you find a job faster – like Targeted job searching, networking, and making personal connections with hiring authorities. When you are diversify your time betwen many job search methods, your job search will be shorter and more effective.
