Sunnyvale, CA (PressExposure) May 27, 2009 -- In challenging economic times, all bets are off in the job market â the ârules of the gameâ no longer apply. You must take matters into your own hands and can not expect typical advances in professional and career development without a concerted effort on your part. Whether highlighting the value you bring in your current role or reaching out to personal contacts in hopes of finding a better job, the onus is on you to promote yourself. Fortunately, in todayâs digital world, there are many innovative tools to help you do this â for example, the growing presence and legitimacy of professional networking websites.
