How to Get a New Job Using Social Media
by Debra Wheatman - Jun, 2011
Did you know that 85% of available jobs are never advertised? Yes, it’s true. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 15% of today’s career opportunities ever make it to the job boards.

by Miriam Salpeter - Jun, 2011
There’s been a lot of buzz in the past week or so about LinkedIn’s “apply” button.
