Facebook Job Hunting in 3 Steps

3) Become A Fan Of Target Companies

Facebook Fan pages can be an incredible source of information about the companies you want to work for. As a job seeker you should think of them as company landing pages which can guide you towards information regarding employment. To find them, use the Facebook search function, narrow the results to “pages” and identify the ones for your targets. If the page is rich with information and updates, become a Facebook Fan.

Here are two examples of employers actively using Facebook Fan Pages.

iProspect is a search engine marketing firm, based in Boston, MA and has just over 1,300 fans. In addition to the traditional company overview stuff, you also get links to a “library” of company research studies and white papers, and access to a photo library with shots of employees and company events

Google, has several fan pages including one devoted to working for the company called Life At Google.

The fan page news feed has content specific to working for Google. For example, here is a post from January 25, 2010, “ Google is one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For! We came in 4th place, but we’re going to work really hard to get back to #1 next year!”

Once you become a Fan, your target company updates will automatically show up in your Facebook news stream. You’ll see the updates as they happen!
