Social media could help you land a job

Facebook is great for staying in touch with friends, sharing pictures and funny videos, keeping up with what your ex is up to... But did you know, it can also help you land a job?

Here's how one expert broke down how to use Facebook when job searching.

First, customize your profile picture. Your picture is typically the first thing a potential employer sees on Facebook. So if you're in job search mode, have a professional picture.

Second, use your status. Let your friends know you are looking. You can also pay for a Facebook ad.

Facebook can use target words for that ad to show up on pages of people who work in companies you are interested in.

Also, "Like" companies you would want to work for.
