LINKEDIN – Many recruiters are searching social media sites for candidates instead of posting positions on job boards. They check out potential candidates’ profiles on LinkedIn before contacting them. In addition to creating a profile on LinkedIn, job seekers can raise their visibility on LinkedIn by participating in groups and answering questions on the Answers section on LinkedIn. Also, it is recommended that job seekers use the Jobs section on LinkedIn to find open positions. LinkedIn will automatically notify you of any connections you have to the company that has the job vacancy. This is a very useful feature since it’s always helpful to try to network your way into a company.
