Subject: finding a job using the internet
Everyone - here is a link to a new research paper by Christine Fountain at the Univ of Washington. It's very relevant to SPM and to each of us as a job seeker.
FINDING A JOB IN THE INFORMATION AGE: JOB SEARCHING, LABOR MARKET OUTCOMES, AND THE INTERNET
See especially the section titled "The strength of online ties", starting on page 26.
I just learned about the paper thru a posting on the Fast Company Blog. I added a comment to the blog about the SPM ResumeBlog project and how it helps the right candidate be found online since most jobs are never posted. The SPM ResumeBlog project also eliminates the resume in place of a 360 degree robust validated view of the job seeker's experience, skills, and professional network. Create your own ResumeBlog.
