PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- 3Away announced today the release of "Social Networking for Job Seekers" webinar that offers job-seekers a comprehensive How-To tool to develop and leverage social networks in order to connect them more directly and rapidly to hiring managers.

Recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data show that the unemployment rate in the US rose to 9.7% with around 15 million people out of work. As a result of the downturn in the economy, many people who once thought they were safe in their jobs are now forced to look for new work in a highly competitive market where employers can pick-and-choose who they will hire. Many companies are seeing 100 to 300 applicants for every job posted.

With hundreds of millions of people using Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, Ryze, Orkut, Bebo, Xing, Plaxo and many other forms of social networking media, many people are still trying to figure out how to leverage social networking to help them find a job. 3Away helps people focus on how to make social networking work for them where it counts - becoming employed.

"The days of throwing a resume onto a company's job board are gone, as employers are overwhelmed with resumes from very qualified people. The new paradigm is finding someone you know inside a company who can help you get to the hiring manager directly. Executives have been practicing this for many years. 3Away brings this knowledge to everyone else," said David Moyer, Managing Director of 3Away.

Whether just starting out in a career, recently let go or looking to make a move, this webinar will take job seekers through the steps to build their professional network, provide tools to find those companies that are hiring and offer tips to leverage their network to get "inside faster".

The webinar is in four parts:

  1. An inside view on how companies start the job process and how to get to the hiring manager
  2. Overview of social networking and how to make it work for you
  3. Demonstrating how to leverage the premier professional business network site - LinkedIn
  4. Demonstrating how to target organizations to gather information on that company prior to your interview

The webinar is available immediately online at www.3away.com for a cost of $75.00 and includes a handbook with all the notes, tips and tricks to get up-and-running quickly.

In addition, 3Away provides a Free Resources section on their website to help job seekers with questions to ask during an interview, a Strength-Weakness-Opportunities-Threat (SWOT) analysis for better decision making, worksheets to organize information on companies they are tracking and a goals list to keep job seekers focused on their search. These free resources will be added to on a frequent basis in order to enable job seekers with better tools to find a job faster.
