    • Managing Your Online Profile
      While Looking for Work
    • Should I set up a new profile or use the one I have?
      DO NOT set up a new profile – (Only exception is when you are a marketer looking for a position in which you will use your profile to market for the new company.)
      Filter Friends with Lists
      Edit your profile
      Manage who sees what

      If Preferred setup a “Close Friends” list
    • Professional Information
      About Me – professional yet slightly personal
      Profile Picture – add a professional looking one (clear out unprofessional ones)
      Featured Friends - (optional) add people in “Job Search” list
      Education and Work – keep it simple, use Linkedin for a more detailed information
      Contact Information –
      Add email, phone, and address (optional) that you would like employers to contact you with.

    • Customize Who Sees What
      From here you can decide who sees your status updates (by default), who sees your family, your employment, and so on.
      Job Search people should see employment, some contact info, “About Me”, and occasional posts (you manually select where appropriate), and filter them out of everything else.
    • Making Friends
      Grab names of potential bosses, coworkers, and even bosses bosses. Wherever you can grab a first and last name, you can find them on Facebook and court them.
      On Facebook
      Event Invites
      Company Pages
      Outside Facebook
      News Articles
      Blogs
      Twitter Handles
      Job Posts
    • Courting
      When friending people, be sure to add a personal message. 9 times out of 10 they will read it and respond accordingly.
      From a job posting mention the posting, that you are interested, and put in your email.
      Message them only if they are active and approachable.
      In your message:
      Mention your interest in working with the company .
      Ask for assistance, who to talk to, etc.
      Never give them a work history or cover letter. Treat them as a friend – not a hiring manager.
