5 ways to use Facebook to find work

http://web.me.com/hydra9/Resume/Using_Facebook_to_find_work.html

Here are just a few ways to use Facebook as a tool in your job search

1.

1)Sync your Twitter <http://www.twitter.com/> feed with your Facebook
status. Then use Tiny URL <http://www.tinyurl.com/> to embed your resume
in your status. If you are not too web savvy then post your resume on
Resumebucket <http://www.resumebucket.com/>. Almost every day I see a
status about looking for work but it would be far easier if the resume was
embedded. Your network has always been your best resource for finding
employment. Doing this with your status simply gets the word out to your
network. One big advantage of using a Twitter feed is that it is publicly
searchable.
2.

2)Edit your profile to include links to your resume, and your
linkedin<http://www.linkedin.com/>profile plus in the about me section
list the type of work you are looking
for.
3.

3)Facebook Groups are a great resource for making connections, posting a
link to your resume and seeing jobs. It is free for recruiters to post jobs
in these groups. If you do not find a group focused on the type of work you
are into, start it!
4.

4)Marketplace <http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/marketplace/?ref=sb> is
an underused section of Facebook where it is free to post jobs. You can also
post your resume. In this economy recruiters and hiring companies are always
looking for free places to post jobs.
5.

5)For about $5 per day you can get a link to your profile to show up to
the right of recruiters pages when they login by placing an
Ad<http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/ads/manage/>that links to your
resume. I see this as a growing trend for job seekers.


(Note that when you post your resume on a public site like Resumebucket or
Craigslist, you do not need to include your address or phone number but do
include all the area codes you would commute to)
