Young Pros! Check-out LinkedIn

For those of you young professionals trying to network, check-out LinkedIn. It's a great place to find associates from old jobs, and perhaps new associates in new jobs. Think of it like a myspace or facebook for the professional world.

I joined LinkedIn a couple years ago, but didn't start building my network until last year. It's a good way to find people from high school, college, and old jobs who are skilled and are great connections. Perhaps you work somewhere who needs people, or you're a skilled professional looking for a new position. LinkedIn has places to search for jobs being offered by people in your extended network and also gives people a way to give and receive personal recommendations. This is a great way to keep building your personal and professional network.

LinkedIn is also accessible on the iPhone.

Linkedin was added to the About.com Top 10 Employment site list with 2 other sites but linkedin is still the only social netwoking site on the list. The 3 newest job sites are:

www.linkedin.com (networking)
www.indeed.com (aggregated job listings)
www.realmatch.com (matches you to the perfect job)

Good luck to all those searching for jobs.
