While LinkedIn remains the best place to go online for job hunting and leveraging connections to help get your resume in front of the right people, Google+ already has a few things in place that can help take it a bit further.
Mashable has the full article, which has some nice (though rather basic) tips. They include:
- Organize Contacts with Circles. Not only is it a good way to share messages with industry contacts, but Circles are also useful to make sure that those contacts don’t see other items.
- Host a Relevant Hangout. This can take some work to set up, but can be a great way to literally get in front of someone and show how you can bring value to their company.
- Use Sparks to share your expertise. One great way to use social networks when job hunting, particularly Twitter, is to show that you are staying current with your area of relevance. Using Sparks and sharing articles from time to time can help with that.
