Paradigm Shift in Jobhunting

According to this recent blog post, there has been a shift in how larger companies seek employees to fill open positions. Rather than posting an opening online at a job board, they set up "talent communities," or seek people through various social media. 

It makes sense. The "old way" for an employer to find a new employee, screening on a case-by-case basis, seems horribly inefficient in the Web 2.0 era. After all, most large companies will predictably have some turnover or new position creation, and thus an ongoing need for fresh faces. 

What this means for you, job-seekers, is that you need to make sure you are online in the right places. Easier said than done, I know!
