As we know that, LinkedIn is the popular tool for business networking & job searching. However, recruiter ‘Stéphane Le Viet’ says that,”Facebook might be an even better too for finding job”.
Facebook is the platform where we connect with our friends, but it is good for more than cat pictures & inside jokes. Letting your own friends on Facebook to know about your job search or letting others also to know about jobs at your company can create the perfect match:
“What you do on Facebook in share content all the day, so sharing the information about the jobs is pretty natural,” he posits. When you do consider that the employee referrals the best and quickest source of the high quality hires, Le Viet Says,”Facebook is a best place in world to make that happen because you know people in your network alot better than on the LinkedIn.”
Our friends often know about the jobs before an employer posts it. They can give out you the inside track to finding & getting the job. If you are currently employed, then make sure you tweak your own privacy settings first, though.
Similarly, you can learn about the company’s culture & research job postings on the Company’s Facebook page. Facebook is the free to post jobs too, so some of the companies may post there first.
