In today’s ultra-competitive job market, it’s not enough to just send your resume off in response to a job ad and wait for the job offers to roll in. Today, employers, recruiters, and your competition are all using social media to build connections and find about the jobs you won’t find on the job boards.

I’ll be hosting three seminars in the next few weeks designed to help job seekers learn to use LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, to help you build relationships that will help you land the job you want. All of these seminars are free and open to all job seekers. I hope to see you there!
