    Though I haven’t looked for jobs online, I know of quite a few people who have gotten them via LinkedIn, even in today’s recessionary economy.

    It’s for this reason that I believe LinkedIn to be the best job-hunting tool of the ones you enumerated. It is far more professional compared to Twitter and Facebook (at least, you wouldn’t expect to see crazy party pictures on a LinkedIn profile) and is clearly geared more towards networking on a professional level (and, in turn, networking is by far the best way to find a job).

    Even though it’s a bit salesy to put this here, I’d like to introduce you job seekers to my job board. I’ve had this board for 7 years now and know it’s helped hundreds of folks find jobs.

    It connects job seekers with 1400+ recruiters across the country. Even in this bad economy, there are several thousand positions to look through. Hopefully this can help in your search.
