How Do Candidates Use Facebook in Their Job Search?

We at Link Humans recently conducted a survey to see how people use Facebook for job searches.

We found the results to be extremely interesting!


  • People don’t really use Facebook to find a job but they use it to get more information about a company.
  • Facebook users aren’t happy when a recruiter contacts them on Facebook.
  • Job seekers tend to use other social platforms like LinkedIn more, the number one social network.

Feel free to tell us in the comments if you already have used Facebook to find a job – we’d love to hear your success stories!
