Are social networking sites (like Face Book and My Space) replacing the need for the hardcopy resume sent by mail to land a job? Read Social Networking for Jobs: Are Snail Mail Resumés Finally Passé? by Ronnie Ann. In her post, Ronnie Ann recaps an interview on Marketplace Money’s October 19th show: New job-seeking tool? It’s the network!
I started to get nervous while reading Ronnie Ann's post, which seemed to spell the doom of paper resumes and the old fashioned who-do-you-know-who-knows-somebody-with-a-job-lead style of job hunting. But Ronnie Ann's conclusion reassured me that the paper resume still has the top notch ranking among job search approaches.
Thanks for the post, Ronnie Ann!
