Anyone else use Linked-In?
It's kinda a social networking type of site but business/job seeking oriented. The idea being that you might not know anyone who has the skills you need for a job you have on offer or who can offer a job that would suit your skills but someone that you know might know someone or someone you know might know someone who knows someone &c. Of course it does rely on you actually knowing people and knowing that they have a profile on Linked-In.
My profile is at :http://www.linkedin.com/pub/0/131/a3b
A few people I know are on there but it just seems so crass to invite someone to link to you.
