Facebook – find jobs via your friends

Use Facebook to spread word about your job search. Your friends can be a shortcut to finding job vacancies.

Via Facebook you have access to many people who know you. Let them know that you are looking for a job by writing a status update and be open about your job search. In this way, your friends can recommend you when job vacancies come up.

Tips for using Facebook

  • Follow organisations and companies. Write comments to get noticed and “like” pages for organisations and companies that interest you. Find out news about the industry and learn more.
  • Find recruitment companies. Search for “recruitment companies” on Google and see if they have a Facebook page. This is where they will advertise current vacancies and sometimes also career tips.
