Deciphering the New Facebook Graph & What It Means For Your Career

Facebook announced their new graph search and immediately users started thinking about their entire history on the site. Well, when it comes to job hunting or upward mobility in your career, there are a few things to keep in mind.

For starters, like companies you may want to work for. Get schooled on what’s going on in their company and remember there’s someone powering their social media engine, even though they may be in PR instead of HR, it’s a great way to connect to get your foot in the door.

Secondly, Complete your work history. (Yes, this means from back in the day). Recruiters frequently search by keyword such as their company’s competitor.

Why not include your past work history and make it public? We’re assuming your LinkedIn profile has your complete history so why should this be any diferent, right? From the way we see it, it can only help you even when you’re not actively looking for a job. Most recruiters love the thrill of the hunt! As they seek passive job seekers via social media, your profile can literally work for you. Make it easy to be found!
