Would you apply to a job twice through different resources such as Craigslist and LinkedIn?

Q. I applied to a Craigslist job post yesterday, and then found the same job on LinkedIn. I wanted to apply through LinkedIn so that the Hiring Manager could see my profile immediately, but I'm afraid that it might be a turn off.

A. No. Only apply for each position ONCE.

If you apply twice you look like:
a) Clueless
b) Submitting so many applications you can't remember to what you applied for
c) Annoying
You don't want to be any of those things. Huge turn-off

What web development technologies like Facebook, LinkedIn, and others are using today?
Q. I am trying to see what leading web sites are using as far as web development technologies. Technologies like HTML5, CSS, Java script, ASP, VB Script, HTML4. What is the common standard today?

A. Facebook uses PHP. Twitter Ruby on Rails. Along with python, java and .net these are the most used programming language in the web.

Why one of my connections on Linkedin is classified as 3rd degree?
Q. When I click on one of my Linkedin conections, it results to be a 3rd degree connection. However, I see his updates and can completely access his profile. Nevertheless, the "Connect" button is visible. What does it mean?

A. If they are a new connection, it can take some time for it to update.

Otherwise, contact the Help Center via the link at the bottom of every LinkedIn page.
