Talk about buzz words and trends. Social networking sites have blossomed in the last couple of years and professionals across industries are still trying to decide what role (if any) they play in business. One group that seems to be figuring it out is the recruiting industry. According to a recent study by Robert Half International, more than one-third of those interviewed said they would tap into social networking sites such as Myspace and Facebook to recruit or get information about potential job candidates. An additional 62 percent of those surveyed said they would use sites such as LinkedIn which is geared more toward business. As social networking sites become more acceptable in the business community, it may be an increasingly opportune place to market your consulting business or to establish networks and approach potential clients.
