In one of my conversations with a client who contacted us via Factbook, I recommended you change your profile picture since it was somewhat provocative and showed it to him on a remote island using only your swimsuit. His answer was: since I’ve uploaded that photo of profile I’ve doubled the number of friends in the Factbook and thats what counts. It is really so? That same customer could not get work by a worrying amount of months. To know more about this subject visit Steven Johnson. Today, employers tend more and more to evaluate the candidate using new and varied methods. Which includes the search for the candidate in various social networks. Facebook, My Space, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.
Since we are exposed in a natural and unstructured manner. Is there any direct connection?. It is questionable. Is it perhaps just? Probably not. Must we commit ourselves only to please potential employers? Not at any cost.
Are these questions relevant? Vaguely. Maintain the stance that our main goal is to find a suitable job, must be aware of all the factors that can influence to find it and try to deal with them. Those who were able to take advantage of this potential hidden already have used social networks in your favor. A full professional profile can make a difference, and if you know how to make use of the same, shall be taken advantage over other candidates less aware of this aspect. I, in my case, not think it prudent to affirm that the big brother concept has infiltrated the labour market, at least yet. However, the job search still so complex as it is, and staying aspects beyond our reach, we must be alert and take advantage of each and every one of the aspects that can influence the job search.
