How An Older Job Seeker Can Use Facebook To Find A New Career?

Did you know that over 1/3 of all jobs are found through networking—more than any othermethod.

There are now over 800 million people on Facebook, which makes it one of the biggest networks available—and that makes it one of the top job seeking tools out there.

Most older job seekers are afraid of utilizing Facebook for their job search because they don’t know how to avoid the mistakes that most people make, and they also don’t fully realize the tremendous potential of a powerful Facebook profile. But a strong social media presence is a must in this job market, and Facebook is the biggest player of all.

If you aren’t on Facebook already then you need to be NOW! If you already are, is your Facebook profile representing you the way a great recruiter would? Is it selling you? Not Sure? Well then, it’s probably not.

    FAcebook gives clear insight into a persons personality and it is easy to see if they will fit into your workplace. Facebook profiles come up on google and are a key way to get noticed. Personal…yep…sorry but if you put anything on the internet, it’s no longer personal. Cheers

    Actually, I have seen that most person’s profiles on FB are not a clear sight into a persons personality. Most people put out there what will make them fit in with other people. It is just like high school, only digital. Also it is so easy for someone to make duplicate FB accounts and only make the “good one” available for everyone to view. As for anything on the internet not personal, I say hogwash. My supervisors have “asked” for access to FB to make sure I am in compliance with their policies. However, that is a clear violation of my rights as an individual. Nothing in my profile says anything about, or even references to who I am employed by. Some people might say then if you have nothing to hide then why not let them? My answer is this, it is not their business. Just my two cents worth.
