Congrats. You have your diploma. Maybe you haven’t earned it yet, but you are close.

In a time when finding a job, and even getting an interview for that matter is harder than ever before, we need to find ways, strategies and ideas to stand out from the competition. Am I an expert? Nope. Not even close. But I do know a few things.

A lot of my friends and acquaintances don’t know much about the internet, don’t care about it, don’t see the benefits it could provide, or are lazy and will probably never come across this or read it because of these facts.

I truly hope, and advise that that changes.

The internet is an incredible, and almost necessary tool in your job search/networking process if used effectively.

While there are blogs, columns and websites all over the internet, I hope to share some simple yet useful information and tips to get you on the right track.

I recently read that many individuals who have considered starting a blog or making a name for themselves on the internet were too worried about what their friends would think or if anyone would ever read or care about it. These same people will regret this decision and envy those who took a chance. I used to be one of these people.
