Top 10 Facebook Fan Pages for Job Seekers

I don’t know about you, but I get Fan Page suggestions sent to me on Facebook every day. From Cheryl Cole to sausage rolls, everyone’s got one nowadays. If you are a job seeker or just take an active interest in your career there are a few good Pages you should consider joining. I have listed what I think is the top 10 in careerland, the titles are hyperlinked to the respective Fan Pages on Facebook.

Final words

If you choose to join all of these Fan Pages, be prepared for a barrage of articles coming up on your home feed on Facebook. If you are not comfortable with this, you can always hide the feed from the Pages you don’t think are that relevant or you can easily unsubscribe.
