As with Twitter, connecting with firms on the professional social network LinkedIn also can provide early word of job openings.

Look for the company tab at the top of the LinkedIn page and use the search function to find firms by name or industry, says Nicole Williams, the site's career expert.

Once you follow a firm, you'll usually see postings for job openings as well news about workers who've taken new positions or have left the company, Williams says. Often, if you see title changes of employees or see workers leaving, you can deduce what jobs are opening at that firm.
