    Has anyone used LinkedIn (

    I got my current job by creating an account, doing a search on relevant terms and simply asking the right people for a job. Simple and direct

    I am a big fan but wondered if anyone else has used it, heard of it, rates it etc

  6. Great for keeping track of where people you know now are (and therefore knowing who might be able to swing you some work.) The rest - depends on your niche. I know people who have had work from simple searches on it, I have had work because people have tracked my current contact details using it. YMMV.
