Updating your job search bag of tricks

8 Tips for Landing Your Dream Job in a Web 2.0 World (scroll down for the tips)

I'm working on a presentation for jobseekers on using Internet services in the job search. The basic themes are:

  • Adding RSS to your bag of tricks to get your computer to do more of the work for you
  • Taking advantage of free news clipping services and other sources to keep up with current topics in your industry
  • Using research tools to investigate your target companies
  • Using social networking sites and research tools to find and learn about contacts in your target companies
  • Increasing your visibility to the market with social media

Jason's post makes a lot of the same points in different words. Sometimes hearing the same lesson from different people helps it sink in.
