I have an account.. Don't really use it now.. However,  I did get a few recruiters to call me (some from staffing agencies, one from Microsoft (didn't bother with that one because I was not trying to move to the west coast), and some others).  If you use it the right way, could be helpful. I have yet to get a job through it, but if you set up a very detailed and professional looking profile, your profile will get some hits. Mines still is and I haven't been active on it in months ( It sends me email when i get a message or a connect), but I am liking my current job right now.

I've had recruiters contact me through that. I rarely go on there though.

I am connected with my former professors and the upper level mgmt at the place I did my internship. I'm very active on linked in. I was somehow connected to a Recruiter and she is always posting jobs but they are in another state. I have been contacted by other recruiters about positions. The positions are good but I don't want to go public 1st before I take an industry job.

Perfect networking tool
