What the heck is a "Social T-Rex™". Think about this; no one alive has ever seen a T-Rex, yet everyone knows who he is, his reputation and when you hear his name, you get an automatic visual.

So how do you become a "Social T-Rex™"? Not in terms of extinction, but in preservation. Here are 5 suggestions:

1. Be Big:
Create a "big" image of yourself. Recruiters are naturally social creatures; use your tools to build your image.

2. Be Bold:
There are many "new frontiers" in recruiting; Blogs|Homepages|LinkedIn|Twitter|Facebook|MySpace|YouTube and many other social networks & media. Attack these new frontiers with hunger.

3. Be remembered:
Attempt to do something everyday that leaves a big and lasting footprint.

4. Be powerful:
You are a resource of knowledge, so be a powerful resource. Become the person that candidates, clients, friends and others turn to you for suggestions and names.

5. Don't become extinct:
Stay ahead of the curve. Learn about trends (emerging, new and time tested).

I hope you had fun reading this, I sure had a blast writing it! I wish you best of luck in all endeavors and much success!
