Our world continues to get smaller as technology continues to get bigger, and now we can connect with almost anyone anywhere in seconds. If you are looking for a new job, it’s important to keep up with the new services and changes in technology and social media so you can stay competitive during your job search. Everyone knows that being active on LinkedIn is helpful, but there are plenty of other things you can do to help job recruiters find out about you and your skills.
As a matter of fact, LinkedIn is starting to show signs of age. I’m referring to the site and the people on it. I’ve read several articles that have analyzed the reasons why young professionals don’t like LinkedIn.

When it comes to helping job recruiters find new talent, it seems young professionals prefer using Twitter and an online resume. Services like Gozaik make it easy to create an online resume and do advanced searches on Twitter, which simplifies the process. These days, creating an online resume is really a must if you want to come across like you know what’s up.
