Facebook Networking Tips
Using Facebook for networking is not a new concept anymore, but you can expand your Facebook network extensively by joining some of Facebook’s professional groups. Do a Facebook search for the names of any professional organizations in your industry, company names that you might have an interest in working for, or general interest groups that are related to your preferred industry. Once you have joined these Facebook groups, become active on them in meaningful ways. Don’t immediately begin talking about your job hunt. Contribute relevant discussion points, get to know other contributors, then after you have become known within the group you can start being more proactive with your networking activities. But even then, don’t bombard group members with your messages. And offer other group members your own help and expertise in return. Common courtesy goes a long way in all networking activities, including on Facebook.
