AppleOne’s New Facebook Ap Will Help Get Your Career Moving
Networking has always been a critical part of finding a new job. Social networking sites like Facebook make it easy to build and maintain a robust network of friends and colleagues, but once you have it, how can you best use it? AppleOne’s new Facebook application, The Career Mobilizer, will help you tap into the power of that network to find your next career opportunity.
In a world where every job ad produces hundreds if not thousands of resumes, you need to use every tool at your disposal to stand out and get noticed. One of the best ways to stand out is to be able to talk to the hiring authority before the ad is run and the flood of respondents overwhelms them.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics almost 3 out of every 4 jobs are found through networking. These jobs are out there, but if you’re not talking to your friends and neighbors, you’d never know it because they get filled before the ads are placed.
To successfully use your network to secure a new career opportunity, you should first decide what opportunities you would like your network to help you identify. Who are the companies you are most interested in working with? What are the jobs you’d most like to secure?
Once you have that, it’s a simple matter of asking your network if they know anybody at those companies or anybody who might be looking for somebody to do one of those jobs. With your network providing introductions to people in your target companies or people looking to hire your specialities, you’ll be far more likely to be able to secure the meeting, expand your network further and discover other introductions that you can request.
