ABSTRACT
The article discusses the growing popularity and increased service offerings of career management web sites such as LinkedIn, Ziggs, and ZoomInfo, and weighs their value. The article reports that the most obvious value of these sites is the user's ability to control his/her own identity and become a passive job seeker. Ziggs has developed a Web desktop where you can orient your world around the folks you know, even sending them a cup of Starbucks coffee. The article explores the professional value of these sites and suggests approaching these sites with caution, remembering the people behind the connection.
