WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sarah Palin has placed her resume on LinkedIn.

Known as the “Facebook for professionals,” LinkedIn is a social media site that displays more than 50 million people’s resumes and allows for virtual business networking for those interested in keeping in touch or finding a job. Palin’s resume includes her position as “Vice Presidential Candidate” for the 2008 election and goes back to 1992 where she was the Council Member for the Wasilla City Council.

LinkedIn lists years of employment as well; her profile says Palin was the governor of the State of Alaska for two years and seven months.

Palin also notes that she is interested in “Job inquiries, expertise requests, business deals, reference requests, and getting back in touch.”

Her 2008 running mate John McCain joined LinkedIn during the campaign to participate in “LinkedIn Answers,” a part of the site where people can ask questions and get answers from professionals. McCain asked, “What is the biggest challenge America faces?”

    Who in the world,with their right mind, with a legitimate business, would hire a professional liar such as Palin? This woman doesn't know truth from fiction.

    MUST be a slow news day...who cares what she has posted...

    It is funny...EVERYONE wants Palin to disappear, to fade into obscurity. BUT, the media is the first one to dredge up something like this to keep her current. Only thing worse than this would be seeing a Michael Jackson story right after this...

    Enough already!

    Does it mention that she will only work for 18 months at which time she will abruptly quit.

    What is it going to take to get this woman to go away? With the chance improving each day that the Republicans can gain majority in Congress and possibly the White House, they need to encourage Palin to keep quiet and stay in Alaska.

    Very light on credentials compared to what you would normally see on LinkedIn.

    Again she has no clue what is what. Linkedln is where professionals go. I think McDonalds is hiring-somewhere.

    See boys and girls...today's lesson. Never quit your job until you know for sure you have one already lined up.

    When will people see just stupid, uneducated, uncouth this woman really is. She is obcessed wiith President because she is racist and bitter because she lost. This country would be in trouble if she eveer gets any national office. Republicans want her because they know she doesn"t know anything and would be thier puppet. She is too snippy, arrogant, and not fit to serve the people, all of the people. African Americans alreadu saw racist she was in the last election although we hope she is the nominee/.

    Don't know what is worse. The balloon stunt late last week with the parents trying to fool america thinking their child may be onboard, or Sarah Palin trying stunt after stunt to get america to love her. Sad to see this

    Getting back in touch? This woman is so far out of touch, I don't know if she was ever in touch.

    Who cares? Why is White House dictating what can and cannot be said about them?

    FREE SPEECH RAHM AND OBAMA. WAKE UP and stop turning American into a dictatorial socialized country.

    FREEDOM OF SPEECH BABY!!!! If you don't like what's being said than provide factual evidence of your own. Don't just point the finger because then three fingers are pointing back at you!
