Job Search Strategies

-Trying to find your supervisor from a job ten years ago where you made an outstanding contribution?
-Wish you could find a contact at XYZ company before you submit a resume and cover letter?
-Wanting to learn more about the career background of the person who will be interviewing you next week?

These are some of the reasons alumni are choosing to utilize social networking job search tools like LinkedIn.com. Although you can’t count on simply filling out a profile and waiting for employers to find you, tools such as LinkedIn can help aid your job search in the above ways.
