I knew many newly grads were scratching their heads how to get a job in such economic atmosphere. But from what I see, many people might get some string pulled, and they land on a decent job. Maybe that is not the case for everyone. What do you think of participating those social network sites, especially facebook. I saw many businesses have their account with facebook too. And almost 8 out of 10 of us might have a facebook account here. If we participate more, and trying to market ourselves there, do you think that you can land on job by recommendation?

Of course! The new trend now is social networking, especially Facebook. Most likely, you can get a job by putting yourself out there for businesses to see. If your trying to find and get a job on Facebook, or any other social networking site, try to make what's on your page appropriate for the business to like you and to maybe hire you. The 3 reason why jobs or businesses are made on social networking sites are for publicity, populating, and to find someone who would want to work for them. It's not that hard to get a job off the internet, but always be careful in what your putting yourself into.
