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:
- 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).
- Follow companies you might like to work for on Twitter.
- Post the same picture on LinkedIn that you do on other social media, to project a consistent "brand."
