Are there really new rules to the job hunt? If you answered NO then you must not be using social media. The days are gone when simply posting your resume on Monster, e-mailing former colleagues, and surfing company websites for possible openings is enough. These days, if you are truly serious about being hired, you really need to put your iPhone and computer to work. That means getting the word out on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, sending instant job-search updates via… Continue
