Using Facebook To Find Jobs
With so many people using Facebook today, it has actually helped in the process of finding jobs. The purpose of Facebook is to build a social network with different people. Your friends might be some of your real-life close friends but you can also friend request professionals or people who work at a company that you want to work for. Using this benefit of Facebook will definitely help you save a huge amount of time when you’re in the job hunting process. Updating your status or profile to let people know that you are looking for a job will definitely help. All your friends on Facebook will have an opportunity to look at your updated status or profile and spread the word. This way, your friend can recommend you to a company or your friends who are employers can look at your profile and contact you. There are lots of groups that are formed inside Facebook. There are groups for people who are looking for jobs and there are groups and pages where job openings are posted. If you use these available sources well, you could be able to help yourself to find a job quicker.
When you are looking for a job, it is important for you to make sure your profile shows your good personality and characteristics. Also, it is very important that your profile is “appropriate”. These days, many employers look at your profiles on Facebook before hiring. Therefore, try not to post up pictures or comments that will degrade you. But rather, put things up that can really show who you are and how great of a person you are. Also, your interests and likes should be well aligned with the career for which you are interested in. For example, if you are looking to work in social media - you should Like, recommend, and comment about many news reports and articles about social media. This will show potential career contacts that you are truly interested in your craft.
There are also many Facebook fan pages that you can Like - which will frequently post job listings. Once you like them, new jobs will get fed directly into your news feed.
Stay active on Facebook, stay alert, and try to forge as many friends as possible to boost your chances of finding a job on Facebook when the time comes to it.
