For anyone looking for a first job, exploring a career change, or just setting up for future success, social media is a proven platform for facilitating connections, demonstrating passions and interests, and ultimately landing the job. Joshua Waldman, author of "Job Searching with Social Media For Dummies" enables you to harness the power of the Internet to research and identify job opportunities, and create a strategy for securing a position.
