4 Ways to Use Facebook While Job Hunting
Turn Your Profile into a Basic Resume
These days, your Facebook profile is as good as a basic resume.
Before you start connecting with potential employers, you’ll
need to get your profile in order. Make it simple to upload your
info (as well as communicate with recruiters) by not only adding
your contact information, but also making sure your work and
education history is up to date.
Show Potential Employers You’re Interested
There’s no better way to let a company know you like it by
“liking” it on Facebook! But don’t just follow a company’s
careers; show you’re an active and interested member of the
talent community by engaging with company updates, as well
as commenting on posts or asking questions of other members
of the talent community. (And if the company allows you to sign
up for job alerts through Facebook, make sure to enter your
email so you never miss a job!)
Make Sure Your Privacy Settings Let Recruiters Find You
Facebook’s privacy settings are more important than ever--
while you don’t want to publish the details of your private life
for all to see, you also don’t want your profile on lock-down!
Make sure you’re searchable, even if you choose not to display
your posts to people who are not your friends. (A hidden profile
is no good to potential employers!)
Use Your Connections to Get Hired
Got a friend working for your dream company? Find out by
hitting up Graph Search with the query “Friends who work for
[INSERT COMPANY HERE].” You’re 40% more likely to get a job
if a friend refers you, and you’re 33% more likely to find a job if
you talk about it with your close friends on Facebook. So post
a status update or two and let your friends know you’re on the
hunt--and if Graph Search comes back with a connected friend
or two, send them a Facebook message. It doesn’t hurt to ask
for an intro!

A tasteful headshot can speak volumes
about your professional image, so save
the sloppy snapshots from last night’s
party for your friends. This doesn’t mean
you need to be in a suit and tie; feel free
to inject that special brand of personality
that makes you you. Just do it in a way
that won’t make recruiters flinch when
they check out your profile!
A picture’s worth 1000 words--which is
more than you’ll fit on your next resume!
Use your cover photo as an opportunity
to build your personal brand and show
potential employers the authentic you:
what are you passionate about? Sports?
An organization? Your family? Do you
have a special skill? Let your cover photo
tell the story of who you are.
Your Privacy Settings
Recruiters don’t want to “friend” you,
but they may want to check out your
profile. Maintain the balance between
personal and professional: use the
privacy settings tab to make your profile
searchable by “Everyone,” and allow it to
show up on search engines. Hide what
you don’t want to be made public by
controlling who can see your posts and
reviewing your Activity Log to make sure
that you approve of photos and posts
friends have tagged you in.
Your “About” Tab
Consider making certain details, like
your work and education history,
the organizations you belong to, the
things that interest you, your location,
the languages you speak, and your
professional contact information public.
All of this information helps recruiters
who use Graph Search to find and
connect with ideal candidates--and it
also helps the companies to which you
apply to learn more about you.
