It's no contest. According to a new survey released by Challenger, Gray & Christmas, networking is the most valuable tool in the job seeker's arsenal. That's not such a surprise, afterall, we've always known it's about who you know. Perhaps the interesting thing about this survey is what came in number two -- social/professional networking. Sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter are apparently the place to move your career forward. Job fairs ranked last as the least effective job-search method.

A recent tip of the day from Harvard Business Review highlights the need to be discerning, even in this job market.

Getting a job offer in this environment can feel like a victory. But all job offers are not equal, and especially now, it pays to do your homework before accepting. Here are three tips for doing the right research before you say yes.

1. Know the company's financial situation. Don't assume that just because the company is making an offer, there isn't trouble ahead. Find out as much as you can about the company's financial stability and market position.

2. Assess your cultural fit. Yes, the hiring manager should be doing this, but you are the one who will suffer most if there is a mismatch between the company culture and your working style.

3. Don't rely on the job description. Ask specific questions about what you will be doing, who you will be working with, and what the expectations are for your role.

For the young folks graduating in a few months, those who find jobs should also find higher pay. According to an article on today, as the financial industry rebound gains steam, college graduates heading to Wall Street will be among those receiving bigger paychecks.

The average starting salary for finance majors graduating in 2010 rose by 1.6 percent to $50,546, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers' spring salary survey.

There's also good news for accounting majors: Their average offer inched up by 0.4 percent to $48,575.

Those majors were among the bright spots. The overall average salary offer to college students set to enter the work this spring is $47,673, which 1.7 percent lower than the average offer of $48,515 made to members of the class of 2009.
