Social Media At Work?

I received a call today from Leah Redditt today from The Laudi Group, a recruitment firm. Leah assessed my interest in a Director of Marketing position at an eCommerce company in Toronto. How this is relevant to my web2.0 experience you may wonder? Leah saw my LinkedIn profile and gave me a call.
