How Facebook Can Help You in Your Business Or Career
With almost a Billion users, Facebook is huge and its power and reach can no longer be underestimated. It’s important to understand that Facebook is not just a utility for social interaction. You can also use it to find a job or to gain clients for your business.
Before I talk about the various strategies you can use, I think it might be worthwhile for you to firstly review your privacy settings to ensure that any private information that you post remains private and cannot be seen by current or potential employers.
To be searchable to the outside world, you may want to allow ‘everyone’ to search for you and view your education and work history. This is the kind of information that future employers would be searching for. You will also want to add your website to your profile and make it viewable to everyone. This is where your Online CV can ‘sell’ your experience in much more detail than facebook. Having an additional website to a basic Facebook profile shows your professionalism and creativity and that you are able to harness the latest technology in a fast changing world.
In your settings, you can also ‘privatise’ your wall posts and photos if these are of a sensitive nature.
Through strategic status updates, you can indicate your availability for work and contracts if you are a business owner.
