If you’re a caffeine-addicted business enthusiast like me, you probably use the free Wi-Fi Starbucks offers (as of July 1st) across the U.S. in between meetings or even on the weekends. Life just got better.
Starting today, the Starbucks Digital Network is here. This, unlike selling wine and beer alongside mochas and frappucinos, is a concept I immediately understood and am in love with to boot. Imagine launching your browser to find the robust SDN with loads of free content from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and for job seekers, the best part is yet to come.
SDN has partnered with uber-premium professional social network, LinkedIn, to create exclusive video and blog content available to users in this channel. It gets better; the network also provides job search candidates a 30-day free trial for a premium account.
As an advocate of social networking, this is where the term comes together both online and offline and creates a powerful ability for you to take your job search into your neighborhood Starbucks. Pack up your iPad, laptop or netbook and head over to your nearest Starbucks to log on to the SDN and start socially networking – both online and offline – to land the 80% of jobs that are landed through networking.
