ZoomInfo

Have you heard of ZoomInfo.com yet? Similar to LinkedIn.com and Rize.com, ZoomInfo allows you to build a personal/professional profile and link your network to those of others. ZoomInfo also enables you to connect with people you may have lost touch with (35+ million folks are already profiled) as well as seek jobs and new companies to contact (3+ million are already listed).

Do social networking sites such as these really help job seekers? The jury is still out on that question, but for now this much is evident: Such sites certainly won’t help you if you’re not listed on them. If you’re not into face-to-face networking, why not give virtual networking a try? You’ve got nothing to lose and potentially millions of ways to gain.
