Good article Rakesh. This one is relevant to the modern times. Every one must have a profile in various social networking sites. For jobs Linked In profile is a must nowadays. Updating one's profile will help the recruiters to find suitable candidate. Recently I started a profile in Linked In. I was astonished at some profiles. How members in that site value their profile is very encouraging. There are 4 Million Indian members and 55 Million global members in Linked in.
As Rakesh said, we can use facebook, myspace and orkut to create our profiles. If we could use intelligently Twitter is also an option. "Be Authentic" thats the secret which always brings victory.
