Sarah Palin joins LinkedIn

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has joined LinkedIn, a professional networking Web site.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has joined LinkedIn, a professional networking Web site.

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?”

    Go Sarah!!! I hope she runs and wins in 2012. We need a real leader in the White House, not a community organizer. There is a big difference between the two.

    I hope she mentions that under her administration as mayor of Wasilla the rape victims had to pay for their own exam kits to the tune up to $1,000. Also did she mention she quit her last job?
    Why would anyone want to hire a looser who may quit when the going gets tough?

    She's no longer an elected official and is a distant 3rd in GOP polling. I think the world should put her on the backburner now.

    may have to sign up – i'd be interested in seeing what she put for education... (no offense idaho state?) she is laughable – strongly suspect she did not score higher than 1000 on her SAT.... thankfully she's no where near a leadership position.

    Additional ability not posted on resume: Until informed prior to the question being asked, has the ability to stick foot in mouth on a moments notice.

    Outstanding resume! She's probably qualified to clean houses,
    maybe even worth $7.50 an hour!

    This woman is more retarded than her youngest son. She is anti-intellectual (doesn't like people who know more than she does) so she is incapable of learning any new job skills.

    Besides, who cares what she does? The voters chose not to hire her and McCain to run the country, can't she get the message?

    Please someone hire her to a position that she loves so that we don't have to worry about her running for office and embarrasing America anymore. Since Thanksgiving is coming soon, maybe she could get a job as a turkey butcher and plucker.

    Who really cares? What happened to real news networks?

    "Facebook for professionals" – since when did these WICKED politicians become professionals????

    I learn prostitution could be professional but Sarah years on the strip and the Lap dances don't count towards those – do they???
