Although we hear a lot about how tough the job market is for job seekers, we often miss the fact that finding good talent is still hard to come by. Hiring pros are constantly telling me that they can’t find candidates to fill their positions. At NoddlePlace.com (not noodleplace), we bring job seekers together to network with one another. But we also serve as an advocate for them using our social networking presence to help get them noticed.
So if you are looking for good talent to fill your positions, stop whining and tell us what you are looking for. As candidates come on to our site, we will happily refer them to you if they seem like a good fit.
Today I want to highlight 6 of our “noddlers” who also happen to be active on Twitter. All of these candidates are job seekers, active or passive. Feel free to connect with these users directly on Twitter or contact me (@noddleplace), and I will make an introduction.

So who am I anyway? Why do I think my advice is so valuable?
My name is Stephen Van Vreede. My company is called No Stone Unturned, and I have spent 15 years on both sides of the corporate hiring experience.
The short story is that I have an MBA in Marketing from Villanova University and a dual B.S. degree in Finance & Logistics from the University of Maryland. I am a certified professional résumé writer (CPRW) and a member of the Professional Association of Résumé Writers and Career Coaches (PARW/CC). As I mentioned, I paid my dues in the corporate world eventually running a large-scale call center for a major truck rental company, and I have spent the past 7 years with No Stone Unturned, assisting job seekers in achieving their goals.
In February 2009, I launched a new group job hunting networking site: NoddlePlace.com. It is absolutely FREE to join, and you have access to everything on the site. Come check it out at NoddlePlace. You can also follow me on Twitter.
