Finding that Next Job

Put on Your Job Face

images-12When it comes to the job search, social media is a great way to locate resources, make contacts and even find job listings.  While there are a number of social media websites all a-twitter (sorry!) with job search help, I had thought until now, that LinkedIn was the undisputed king of the job search.  After all, LinkedIn provides every conceivable industry networking opportunity, has great search capabilities and can show you how to connect to just the right person.

But a recent post on facebook caught my eye about the value of that website for the job search.  I am a facebook fan and am in awe of the site’s reach and the viral potential of its groups and fan pages.  But what I didn’t know was how many applications are available on facebook to help the job seeker.

AskBINC has identified 20 useful job search applications on facebook.  The apps range from simple but helpful, like posting a LinkedIn badge on your facebook page, to the really handy Indeed Job Search app that helps you find jobs where your friends work.  Many of the other 18 apps help you grow your social network which enhances the job search process.

facebook:  it’s not just for dumb quizzes anymore!
