Not enough? That’s fine!
Job boards are simply not as effective anymore since there are social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, and even Twitter where you can create a powerful network which may bring you to the perfect job. The fact is, job boards have a 2–4% effectiveness rate whereas networking has over a 50% effectiveness rate. As a professional with skills and professional expertise, when you network, you should identify contacts to build mutually beneficial relationships and follow up with them to nurture the potential for continued engagement and interaction.
However, turning Facebook into a job searching platform completely is likely to blur the borders between people’s private and public life even further. For those who can’t resist the temptation to post something employers shouldn’t see, privacy settings remain the most reliable protection. Moreover, taking into consideration the current scandal with Facebook, it might be helpful to find another way to search for a job.
