Yahoo To Kickstart College Students' Careers

Yahoo is launching a social networking service for college students to help them find careers, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Kickstart as the product will be called is designed to help college students network with professionals who can help them with internships, jobs and career advise. A combination of Linked In and Facebook features, Kickstart will help college students build their own networks with future employers and people who can help them with their post college futures.
