This is not beneficial only to recruiters. It can also be extremely beneficial to someone in an Indianapolis job search. If you are already actively interacting on Facebook on a daily or weekly basis, why not also conduct your job search activity without having to go to multiple other sites? If you are a fan of or "Like" the Page associated with the top companies you’re targeting in your job search, you can review their list of current open jobs and choose the ones in which you would like to apply (that is, if they are using this feature). In some instances you may not even have to visit their actual Facebook page to get that information. Facebook has the option to "share" the link to the posting with the fans of that page and fans can also share it with their individual friends as well. So for example, you may not be a fan of a particular company, but you might find out about their open positions if one of your friends shares a link to one of the positions with you (or their entire group of friends). Whew! That sounds complicated, but it is really not, give it a try.
I know that a lot of social networking skeptics would say that they don’t become a fan of or "Like" a company they are targeting because they don’t want people on that page to be able to see their personal profiles. Well, good news! If you set your privacy settings correctly, they won’t be able to see anything on your profile unless you actually become friends with those individuals. So what do you have to lose? Again, if you’re already spending the time on Facebook, why not make it productive for professional purposes as well?
