Micro blogs now a choice in job hunt

Putting your unique resume online to interact with head hunters and managers may get you closer to your goal, but it takes patience, Xu Lin finds out.

Like many people of her age, Zhou Meng, who is 22 and a recent university graduate, likes using her micro blog to record her daily life and communicate with others, but, it had never occurred to her that she might also use it to hunt for a job. Then came the inspiration, from people who were posting their resumes on Sina Weibo, and she decided to follow suit, in the hope of getting more people to see her work and even make some suggestions.
