The old methods of searching for a job and attending networking events have been replaced by a more viable online employment quest, utilizing social media, online networking, video promotion and more.

According to author and career expert Dan Schawbel, while a resume may still remain an important part of helping to grab an employer's or headhunter's attention, you also need a unique and special edge to stand out from the pack.
