Social Networking Sites an Option?

It’s interesting that we are now looking to social networking sites for potential career options. Does it make any sense that Google offers Facebook $1 billion and the owner of Facebook turns them down? It starting to make sense folks. We are now faced with the clear sense that sales professionals that include hungry recruiters are now looking to blog sites and social networking sites to win top talent. Video resumes will continue to pervade and recruiters will continue to look for dirt and good stuff on potential candidates. That’s the way it goes. If you do not know this then run from those city folks and their flying machines and get your cannon out so you can travel.

The tip of the social networking iceberg is well above the water line. But there are still big opportunities below the surface for savvy sales professionals. Networking sites that are organized around business connections have turned into a powerful tool for salespeople to add to their toolkit.
Study and Learn:
  • The do’s and don’ts of social networking for business
  • Reasonable expectations for prospecting online
  • Why now is the time to get onboard
So they are just starting to talk about this and that’s good. It’s worth considering, talking about, blogging about and more.

    I love the fact John’s been focusing on this work for so long. The ideas still apply if a lot of people applied the sense of humor and people skills in the last two years I think they would have done so much more to recession proof their career. Funny, good and class stuff here.
