Networking Web Sites: A New Job-Search Arena

Tina Mitiguy remained unemployed after exhausting most traditional job-search techniques. Then she was invited by a friend to join, an online networking site.

A few days later, a manager using the site spotted her online profile and contacted her about a job opening. The next week, she was hired.

Ken Toren, the VP of Marketing who contacted Tina, didn't post an ad anywhere for the job. Nor has he considered hiring a search firm to fill other positions at the company. So far, he has done all his sourcing on LinkedIn.
