There are many social network sites on the internet these days and you have probably heard about a lot of the big guys like Facebook, MySpace, Bebo & Friends Reunited, but have you heard about one that is designed as a professional business contact?
It is called Linked In. I’ve found a lot of people are using it to get their qualifications and experience published as a fair amount of employers search this site for potential employees now.
Take finance law specialist Jon Queen’s page for instance. From looking at his profile you can see what he is currently doing, what he has done in the past, what his qualifications are, where he went to school and even a summery. The only bit of information we do not know about him via this page is what size shoes he wears!
In the not too distant future I can honestly see people ditching the old CV method and turning to Linked In pages iinstead as it does pretty much the same thing as a CV anyway.
In fact I think I’ll set one up today, it is free and it might help me gain employment sooner.
