LinkedIn & Networking
LinkedIn has become the Facebook for professional networking and career contacts. Its well-organized functionality and career content make it the most important Web-based career development tool for all fields. A 2010 Drake Beam Morin study showed that 64% of successful job hunters used networking to gain employment. 75% of your energy should go into networking, and LinkedIn is a great place to start.
