These days, such links are called "contacts", and a common word for all of your contacts is your "network" talking to these people is "networking".
Counseling, Testing & Advice
At some point, you may realize you need a little career counseling, perhaps some skills testing, and you're hoping to find these on the Internet. Naturally, the Internet cannot replace a live, face-to-face career counselor. But the Internet can give you quite a bit of guidance for your job hunt.

When most people are job-hunting, their instinct is to go directly to the job boards and see what is available. Some are richly rewarded, while others are bitterly disappointed. This is not what the Internet does best when you are job-hunting, but it is probably what the Internet should do best.
