There is a continuing increase in the number of
tools and sites to go to for career issues.  How
many can we use at a time? 

My suggestion is to explore one or two deeply
and continually screen others.  My searching
and digging continues to find LinkedIn high
on the list of “go to sites.”  My digging has uncovered
some suggestions from the Q& A section of

- developing small talk topics/  find people you
will meet and know something about them– their
schools, hobbies, acquaintances.

 - unearthing information about turnover, key
employees and prospects of a company–
search for company name and uncheck “current
companies only”

- sensing snapshots of industries and leading
issues– search people who worked for competitors
and even companies that no longer compete (sometimes
not easy to find…but think of photography and
imaging, automotive)

- Guy Kawasaki’s blog seems to contain a
wealth of other ways to explore in LinkedIn
Another site is 1 .
