Visit the Linkedin's Jobs Tab

Many professionals have found that proper use of social networking sites such as Linkedin.com and Plaxo.com help to quickly identify and market to hiring managers and recruiters. By properly completing your Linkedin.com profile, you will instantly connect with people you have gone to school with, worked with and associated with.

For example, if you have your heart set on working at the University of Pennsylvania, the largest employer in Philadelphia, after logging into Linkedin.com, you can search on “University of Pennsylvania” , find and connect with several people who work there. More importantly, you will be able to quickly identify if there are people who work for the University of Pennsylvania that are already in your network.  JCLamkin.com or JC-Lamkin.GLTmyPC.com allows you to connect with people who are technologically advanced.

Additionally, once you’ve joined a Linkedin.com group, you will see the job postings listed in that group. Groups are online cafes where people of similar interests connect. Job recruiters and job seekers are often found discussing news and information in their respective industries.
