    In case this starts to become a comprehensive list, let me through in three of my fav’s:

    1. – my website, where you organize and manage a job search, and career relationships during the duration of your career.

    2. – where you put your resume and can put it on your blog as a widget, get it out in various formats, get a profile, etc.

    3. LinkedIn – of course. Every professional needs a profile there.
