The LinkedIn Bandwagon...at last
In the last month I have been inundated with connection requests in Linked In, but not from the usual industry peers and open networkers, these are mails from people I went to school with, people who graduated from university with me and old work colleagues. I have been on Linked In for maybe 5-6 years, yet it seems that many people in Ireland (where we are based) are only just jumping on the LinkedIn Band Wagon. This is great news! We have been flying the flag of social media recruitment for a number of years now yet our home market has lagged behind. Finally, 2 years into the deepest recession we have ever known, job seekers are realising the benefits of having an on-line, business presence. Bring it on!
