I didn't try CardMunch until yesterday. It's one of the few things I can honestly say I wish I had found sooner.


Cardmunch doesn't eliminate business cards altogether, but it keeps you from having to hoard (and lose) piles of them.
The app is simple. You take a picture of a business card and upload it to CardMunch. CardMunch has people type in the person's information and store it as a clean, mobile contact. It also keeps a photo of the original business card as a backup.

(From the article): The LinkedIn recommendation IS the new reference letter. After a recruiter determines that your resume meets fundamental requirements the next step they take 99.9 percent of the time is to check out your LinkedIn profile. This is a good thing — assuming you have spent quality time on your profile.

(From the article): Recruiters overwhelmingly say they use LinkedIn. A survey last week from staffing software company Bullhorn, based on information from 260,000 worldwide recruiters, showed that 97% use LinkedIn. But if I’m any gage, I’ve only ever gotten one job inquiry from a hiring manager who found me on LinkedIn and I’ve heard from zero recruiters. I also don’t think the best way to find jobs is through recruiters. It’s through people you know. LinkedIn can help you do that if you use it wisely.
