jobOct 18, (THAINDIAN NEWS) In today’s world of networking where people spend most of their leisure times socializing with people through social-networking sites, what better way to look for a job other than hunting for them in popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, to name a few. With the upsurge in the popularity of the social networking sites, it has become a valuable tool not only to stay in touch with your friends and interact with new people but also to hunt for the right job.

One of the popular micro-blogging site that provides just the right opportunity to job-seekers to hunt for the perfect job is Twitter through which they can interact one-on-one with the employers. The least that one needs to do to sign up to follow the tweets of the preferred recruiters to get first information whenever the company intends to hire new people. Twitter also enables its users to utilize tools such as Tweetdeck, which allows the job-seekers to look for specific topics related to the industry and when any users tweets on that topic, they immediately get a notification. If Twitter comes handy while searching for jobs, Facebook is not far behind as it can also be termed as a valuable job-hunting tool. A Google search with the terms Facebook and ‘job hunting’ or ‘career search’ might fetch you important links that would take to the posts on the social-networking site related to job openings, career options, among others.

However, one of the most sought after social networking site when it comes to looking out for jobs is LinkedIn as it is regarded as the top business networking website. The best way to get noticed in the job scenario with your LinkedIn profile is to create an up-to-date and professional looking profile.
