How Your Next Boss Will Find You

It won't be by posting a classified ad in your local paper(has anyone ever got a job that way?). It likely won't be by connecting through Monster.com or CareerBuilder, either.

According to a recent survey by ExecuNet, an executive matchmaking firm, 70% surveyed said their next job or job candidate would likely come from professional networking. For the record, ExecuNet surveyed a mix of 6000 recruiters and potentially itchy executives looking to make a move. Out of that same group, only 16% said they expected to make the connection through online advertising.

My question: what is to become of site's like Monster? Are they going to survive in the Web 2.0 world?

At 16%, I'm guessing their executives better be getting those resumes out - on Facebook and LinkedIn!
