How do you go about changing careers in the modern, digital age? Is it any different for politicians? If former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is an example, perhaps not.
First, you resign from your current job. Check.
Next, you make yourself visible to potential new employers. Check, check.
Sarah Palin has been pretty visible – given her nearly 1 Million Facebook friends, several thousand Twitter followers and the intense interest in her not-yet-published memoirs. But her popularity has been slipping and now we see she is also utilizing one of the tools many job seekers and networking professionals employ: LinkedIn.com
Palin apparently has her resume posted on Linked In HERE where she lists her interests as ‘job inquiries and business deals” among others (if it really was Palin who posted this).
There is no question that social networking sites are here to stay as a tool for communicating – for politicians and non-politicians alike. But what’s next? Finding a VP running mate on Match.com?
