Need a new job?
Try logging onto Facebook.
Surfing social media when you’re supposed to be on the hunt for gigs might sound like a bad idea.
But Facebook now has a new jobs feature that can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
With 65 million businesses currently using Facebook pages, it’s definitely worth a shot.
Here’s how you can snag a job on Facebook:
Before you start applying for jobs, make sure your account is shipshape -- prospective employers will be seeing your public profile, after all.
Check to make sure everything looks to be in order by hitting the 'View As' function. Remove any objectionable content. If you really want to wow hiring managers, publish well-written posts or share articles pertaining to your industry.
Your application will auto-populate job history and other information you've included on your profile so you don't have to start over every time. You can edit your information before you submit.
After you hit submit, Messenger will automatically open a thread between you and the company's Facebook page.
