UNSUITABLE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACKNOWLEDGED
If you are a Facebook "power user"
you've probably updated your About
section more than once. With all the
recent changes Facebook has made to
that part of your profile, your About
section can now essentially act as your
And that may be exactly what Facebook
wants. Some experts in the online recruit-
ment industry believe Facebook will soon
offer Linkedin style services for recruiters
to find you. Heck, recruiters already use
Facebook's Graph Search.
If you have a job title and a location list-
ed, recruiters can certainly find you. And
for $1 they can send you a message.
There are still those who shun Facebook
for professional use. But plenty of people
take the opposite stance. I am certainly
one of those, and use lists to separate my
professional contacts and personal friends
When I post something of relevance to
my profession, I just post it to my "Busi-
ness" friends. So you can successfully keep
your professional and private sides apart.
It just takes a little extra effort.
I believe one day most job boards and
applicant tracking systems will begin to
accept your Facebook profile as the basis
of a job application.
Facebook as Your Resume
Job seekers who want to use their Face-
book to be found and eventually apply to
jobs with Facebook should use these tips
to maximize their profile.
1. Photos at the top of your profile.
Go through all tagged photos of yourself
since these appear first in your profile.
Untag any unwanted photos that make you
look bad. I realize this is common sense
advice, but some people need a reminder.
You may consider actually stocking your
recently tagged photos with professional
pictures so all featured pictures tell the
story you want to tell.
2. The new Education and Work sec-
Give yourself a title or a headline that
is descriptive and explains your
expertise.Use plenty of KEYWORDS! Key-
words are the life blood of recruiting and
For example if your current title is
"Account Executive" and you work for a
software company, change your title to
give it more context. Use "Account Exec-
utive - Software Sales" instead.
Add your past positions as well to show
a chronological order of your employment.
You can also add details for each job held
by adding a project. This is your chance
to add your responsibilities for that job
with more keywords.
3. Professional Skills & About You.
These two sections are yet more oppor-
tunity to add keywords. The skills section
lets you add those primary skill sets. They
are equivalent to the "endorsements" you
get on Linkedin. The About You section
is kind of like a headline for your profile.
Use it to create a short sentence about
what you do and the industry you work
4. Contact Info & Location.
Be sure to have your current location
listed - the city and state should be suf-
ficient. As for contact info, it's up to you
how much you want to share. (Editor's
note: Sharing your street address is not
generally recommended.) When recruiters
are looking on Graph Search they are almost
always adding a location (typically a city
and state) to their query.
At the very least, add the same email
address that you have on your regular
resume so that recruiters can contact you
Facebook, like most social media
sites, is constantly evolving. Those
who want to harness it for job search
can do so quite easily. In the coming
years, the site is sure to become a pow-
erhouse for recruiting professionals.
That means job seekers will have more
opportunity to stand out and be found.
It just might become the "new
