The Job Hunt | Old School V.S. New School | Reuling and Associates Recruitment Firm | 630.446.0746

Are there really new rules to the job hunt? If you answered NO then you must not be using social media. The days are gone when simply posting your resume on Monster, e-mailing former colleagues, and surfing company websites for possible openings is enough. These days, if you are truly serious about being hired, you really need to put your iPhone and computer to work. That means getting the word out on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, sending instant job-search updates via messaging feeds like Twitter, and meeting new people who might be able to lend a hand through Web-networking outfits like LinkedIn and Ryze.

So let’s start getting the word out with Facebook:

Before you get started you should adjust your privacy settings on Fcebook so that potential employers and professional connections cannot view too much of your personal information.

How to get Facebook Job Search Applications:

First login to Facebook, click on Profile, type the application name in the search box, then follow the instructions to install. Or, visit the Facebook Application Directory and search using "job search" or "jobs" as keywords.

The following are my personal top 5 Facebook applications for job seekers:

1. Business Cards

2. Inside Job

3. Professional Profile

4. My LinkedIn Profile

5. CareerBuilder
