Fresh technologies put your "schmoozing" to work.

Social networking has grown up, left school, and gone to work. Today, NimbleCat introduced a suite of three Facebook applications which help anyone to build professional value into their social network.

Despite a great deal of press about merging professional and social networks, and Facebook's new profile design, building a professional network continues to be a hit and miss process for individuals. Most professionals either connect with people they already know, or promiscuously connect with anyone who requests it. What's missing is a means to actively incorporate an individual's professional life into their existing social networks.

NimbleCat advocates a two-step approach, enabled by their new Facebook applications. The first step is to ensure that you have a credible professional profile that represents you appropriately and quickly lets others know the value of connecting with you. This is made possible by the NimbleCat Grader™ application, http://apps.facebook.com/ncgrader, which enables a Facebook user to grade their professional profile on Facebook or LinkedIn, or to grade a resume. They can then see how they compare with their peers, and improve their resume or profile based on NimbleCat's analysis. Next, they can add a link to their profiles on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

The second step is to develop your network in a targeted manner that reflects your professional goals. For example, an engineer who would like to move into marketing may want to connect with some senior marketing professionals to gain advice and mentoring before making the move. NimbleCat's People Search™ application, http://apps.facebook.com/ncsearch, is designed to identify credible professionals in many different areas, and then quickly connect with them through their established social networks. It also provides links for following people on Twitter or for researching them on Google.

Finally, the career-focused professional who wants to track the job market will find the NimbleCat Jobs™ application, http://apps.facebook.com/ncjobalerts, invaluable. NimbleCat aggregates over a million jobs each month; the Jobs application then matches these with a user's resume or social profile and gives them daily notifications, all from within the always-on environment of Facebook.

NimbleCat is the best way to find professionals on the Internet and connect with them on social networks that they frequent. The company provides a people search engine and free career tools. NimbleCat was founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to bring social search solutions to market for business people, employers and high value professionals.
