I’ve been very open that as a recruitment consultant, I find as many people on Facebook as LinkedIn and sometimes more because Facebook is definitely more about networks.
Key advice from the infographic-
Update your network on your job search via Status Updates. When your Facebook friend is out drinking and someone at the table mentions she is stressed because she can’t find anyone good for a new position, you’ll be in your friend’s subconscience, ultimately leading to a connection when everyone is sober.
Don’t assume an employer won’t see your profile. I know of a jobseeker who had a locked-down profile… but one of his Facebook friends showed a recent interviewer something controversial he had posted on the platform anyway. He was summarily rejected.
