Facebook can get you a job

Can Facebook get you a job? Apparently, yes! So can other social media, including Twitter and LinkedIn.The numbers are pretty startling--18 million people say they got their current job through Facebook, 10 million through LinkedIn, 8 million through Twitter.

Here's a cool infographic with some statistics, as well as the following tips:
  1. Post "notes" on Facebook, describing your job interests--in a word, network (and follow the cardinal rule of networking--give as much as you take).
  2. Follow companies you might like to work for on Twitter.
  3. Post the same picture on LinkedIn that you do on other social media, to project a consistent "brand."
