Will Your Facebook Profile Double as Your Resume?

We're not going to answer our own question, but it's an interesting (and increasingly likely) possibility. We'll explain why.

Facebook recently launched its "Social Jobs" App. Social Jobs aggregates job postings from many popular job boards and allows users to search for jobs based on various things, such as location, field, etc. This is all well and good; in fact it's standard stuff, really. Where Facebook's venture into job searching gets interesting is when you think about the fact that once an open job is found users can "like" it and companies can see who likes the various jobs. 

While it may be difficult to imagine HR departments checking out the profiles of people who "like" their job postings, the fact that a user could be singled out for that very reason begs the question, "Will your Facebook profile one day double as your resume?" And, "Should it now?"

The jury is still out on the above question, but there is no doubt that, with Facebook now in the job search arena, your profile will need to receive more attention than many job searchers previously thought.
