Career Management for Today’s Workplace

Social networking is not a trend. It’s part of the culture surrounding our family, our friends and our careers.

In May 2009, 72 percent of surveyed recruiters said they would invest more in social media this year (ERE). Only 26 percent said they would invest more in job boards. Career management is changing, and so should you.
