LinkedIn Adds One New Member Every Second

LinkedIn, an online community for networking with colleagues, peers, bosses and recruiters, is a career networking website that boasts 85 million members and continues to gain popularity worldwide, according to a recent AFP article.

In an age where job-seekers and employers alike turn to the internet for job postings and qualified candidates, digital resumes on websites such as LinkedIn and VisualCV become invaluable feeds of information, opportunity and outreach. They also provide a form of social networking outside of very personalized Facebook and Twitter accounts, which would be a step in the right direction for many college students seeking post-graduate employment.

Furthermore, if you have built up a portfolio of multimedia productions, projects or web designs, digital resumes on VisualCV can also help to display a dynamic body of work and impress a potential employer. Showing you are technology savvy and up on the latest in social media might just give you an edge in the extremely competitive job-market.

So if you are serious about getting a job, check out LinkedIn and VisualCV.
