Hiring managers say they stay clear of candidates who make these digital job-seeking mistakes:

* Not having an updated profile, with recommendations, on sites like LinkedIn or similar sites relating to your line of work
* Having a husband-and-wife e-mail address
* Having an AOL address. Some executives say those are very outdated.
* Not doing extensive research about the company, its culture and the position you're applying for
* Not filing your resume digitally, even if you bring paper backups
* "Cold" e-mailing executives with whom you've never made a prior connection, either online or in person
* Asking an executive you're hoping will hire you to be your "friend" on Facebook
