Job Seekers Using Facebook To Find Jobs
Apart from its friend-finding usefulness, Facebook is also becoming a go-to site for job seekers. According to a survey by Jobvite, social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are proving that connections matter when it comes to finding work, and these platforms help users to stay connected. One out of five Facebook users say they have shared a job with a contact on Facebook while 19 percent of LinkedIn's users have shared a job with a contact. Just eleven percent of Twitter's users say the same. The number of job seekers using social media to find jobs is actually up from last year's Jobvite survey.
Jobvite's president says the new survey shows that social media has become a critical tool for job seekers and employers and that maintaining a professional online presence is important for career growth.
