Re: LinkedIn, Naymz and other professional networks
When I asked the question about professional networking sites like
I wasn't really thinking of them as ways to get the attention of recruiters or headhunters nor was I thinking of them as a means of getting jobs.
Incidentally, after a three year absence from LinkedIn I recently rejoined it. One of my pet peeves about these sites is they are rather restrictive in the way they force members to list profile data., For example, one of the required fields asks what industry you're in and there is not a selection called "oxygen rep" or "DME" so oxygen reps have to select generic "sales" or some other healthcare or medical designation. And for headhunters who might be reading this, there is no "headhunter" selection but there is a "staffing and recruiting" designation (not the same as headhunting) and there is also a "human resources" category. And of course, as we all know, executive search work is way too important to be left to HR.
