How often does one relocate for jobs?

I was told that with the poor job market, it is common for people to move to where jobs are available, rather than looking for jobs near their current location. Is this true? #college #career #job...

Are there any good websites that let you "search" degree types?

Do jobs really recruit you from LinkedIn?

I recently made a LinkedIn profile to the best of my ability. I would like to get it looked over by someone for advice on how to improve it, especially since I've heard that companies are apparently using online recruiters. #college #career #job-search #recruiting...
