What Facebook Pages Help Your Job Search?

Sep 26 2011 in Featured, Networking/Social Networking, reCareered Blog by Phil Rosenberg

Here’s another way Facebook can help your job search.

Facebook has a number of pages that provide job seekers with some great resources. Some feature articles, others video, discussions, polls, or job search answers.

Many of you have seen reCareered’s page at http://facebook.com/reCareered , also included in the list below.

Author Susan Ireland composed a list of the best 16 Facebook Pages For Job Search:

“Facebook has become far more than a site for photo sharing and chit chat with friends and family — it’s now used for job search. I’ve been compiling my list of the best Facebook pages for job search, and thought I’d share it with you.

As you click through the following Facebook pages, notice that some allow comments, others do not. I especially like the ones that allow you to ask questions and encourage dialog with fellow readers. They make you feel like you’ve joined a community for online support, even if you don’t ask a question or leave a comment.

Which are your favorites?
