We all know that networking is the best way to find jobs. Fortunately, sites like LinkedIn.com are making it easier all the time to get connected. If you haven't already done so, now is the time to begin building your network on LinkedIn.com. It is free, easy to use, and has a number of very sophisticated features. For example, if you have an upcoming job interview, you can use LinkedIn.com to connect with people in your network (or expanded network) who might be able to help you with your pre-interview research. All you need to do is go to LinkedIn.com, click on the company tab and enter the name of a firm you'd like to work for. A list of people with LinkedIn profiles who work there will pop up and if you're connected to any of them, even with a degree or two of separation, your connections will be noted on the screen. You can then leverage those connections to network your way to helpful information about your target company.
