    • Guide Get Hired Using Facebook As a Facebook user, you have unprecedented access to your favorite companies. And now those companies are putting their jobs (and their recruiters) right where you need them most: on your favorite social network. Use the following tips to get the most out of Facebook for your job hunt, and update your status from “fan” to “employee” in no time at all! Will your next job be with the company you “like” the most? Use this guide to go from “fan” to “candidate” on Facebook in four easy steps! UPDATE: Turn your profile into a basic resume LIKE: Show potential employers you’re interested SHARE: Make sure your privacy settings let recruiters find you CONNECT: Use your connections to get hired 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!

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! Cover Photo 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. What to Update Now
