    Social media and social networking are the rage right now, in business and in private
    life. We humans like to connect with each other, and we have just discovered a
    wonderful venue emerging for us to use. Naturally, as with anything social, job search
    is a large portion of what is happening.

    Social media has become a fast and cheap "background check" that is often done before
    inviting a job applicant in for an interview. Employers search social media to verify the
    facts on resumes, to check out knowledge and attitudes expressed publicly (careful!),
    and evaluate communications skills.

    some insight into how candidates can really stand out.
