Social Recruiting
"People get jobs through other people, not computers. By having a personal connection to the company you’re applying for, your chances of getting a job multiply. If all you do is submit your resume blindly on job boards, you won’t have much luck." - Dan Schawbel

Your profile can help you make connections

2. DO be consistent:
Make sure your profiles reflect your resume

3. DO set your privacy settings:

1. Don't use inappropriate language:
Employers will be less likely to hire you

2. Don't connect with everyone:
