How to make your own Facebook CV
Why to have a Facebook account? The majority of us will answer something like: “to let all my friends know how amazing I am doing”, “to find out what my ex is doing”, “to be constantly updated with bull****”, or “because I don’t have anything better to do”. However, some people might also reply that they have a Facebook profile in order to increase their visibility as job seekers. Wait a minute…really? How does that work?
Many job seekers kick off their job search with an email to everyone they know asking for leads. A common problem is that after a few weeks or months, friends and family forget that they’re still looking for a job. Your Facebook profile can help you with that by constantly reminding every visitor about your job search without you needing to send followups. Then when a lead comes to mind, they’ll just need to click ‘Share Profile’. Nice strategy, uh?
That said, if you are interested in following a more strategical use of Facebook, then you can transform your Facebook profile into a CV. You just need to follow these simple 5 steps:
- Create the images (through Adobe Illustrator or image editor websites)
- Upload the images
- Tag the images
- Adjust your bio
- Set up the texts
