Editor's Note
Bill Grabarek, Assistant Managing Editor As the job market has tightened up, the means by which you get your name and qualifications in front of employers has become more challenging and dynamic. The process has evolved from scouring a newspaper’s want ads to combing employment sites on the Internet. The job search has evolved once again with the advent of social networking sites, including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. We hope the articles below will help make your job search more productive and, ultimately, more successful. It would behoove employers to read these social networking tips, too, so that they are better equipped to recruit the best and the brightest.

Best wishes,
Bill Grabarek
Assistant Managing Editor
