Social Networking to Help Your Career: LinkedIn 2.0

LinkedIn and Twitter are helping many people land informational, job interviews, and use the power of crowds to get advice on issues they're facing on the job.

While those tools do offer ways to target people in your field, a new article on mentions a new generation of social networking sites aimed at individual subgroups:
  • Top managers are getting tips from peers at Meet the Boss. That site restricts membership to financial executives, usually at the C level (as in "chief").
  • Epernicus is for scientists.
  • Graduate Junction caters to graduate students; for those already out of school.
  • MyWorkster connects professionals with fellow alumni.
  • Jobvite helps companies tap the power of social networks to find the best referrals for their available jobs.
