Glassdoor Mines Your Facebook Connections To Hook You Up

Finding a job, we’re often told, is more aboutwho you know rather not what you know. Glassdoor, the site that gives you an insider look into companies’ interview questions and salaries, now wants to add personal insider connections to give you an edge in your job search—via your Facebook friends. When you connect Glassdoor to Facebook and click on a company, now in addition to seeing job listings, reviews, salaries, and interview details, you’ll see which Facebook friends (or friends of friends) are connected to that company—which means you might have an ally in your job application if you’re interested in applying. While professional networking site LinkedIn might seem a more obvious network to turn to for job searching, there’s no reason you can’t use both services. Some or many of your friends might not be using LinkedIn or might be more active on Facebook, and when you’re looking for a job, it makes sense to try every avenue. Glassdoor via LifeHacker
