How can you use Facebook in your job hunting? We have listed some of the best groups for you to join and also check out our tips on how to land a job.
Facebook is among the leading platforms of Social Media. It is also used for hiring for part-time, temporary and remote jobs. If you already have a regular full-time job, you can still make use of these Facebook groups to look for certain jobs that take place over a few days, weekends, evenings etc. There are also work from home jobs which you can literally do from anywhere, all you would be needing is an internet connection. Some of these Job groups on Facebook have a lot of spam content and very few job postings if any, so it is hard to find the right ones. We have listed down a few of the best Facebook Groups that can help you in earning that extra cash! 1. Guavabean Freelancer Group - The best in line as it lists jobs from all around the world that are remote and can be done from any location.

Most likely, people in the group do not know you and would be unlikely to help a stranger. You can build connections, get to know others, share your knowledge and skills that make you a valuable asset.
Once group members get to know you, they can refer you somewhere else. Many freelancers secure their jobs and get new clients through word of mouth and referrals. Ask all your friends on social media and let them know you are available for any job openings, you may get referred by someone you know. Also, do not spam these groups with posts that are unrelated to jobs and freelancing opportunities. You will most likely be removed from these groups. Do not give up if you have failed to secure anything and ensure that you check these groups regularly. If you do not get something today, you may get something in your favor tomorrow. You will have to be persistent and send your applications for all those that are relevant to your skills and qualifications. If you feel a job doesn't offer adequate pay, but you really want to work for that position, then give it all your best and hopefully success shall follow you. Like Colin Powell rightly said, "A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes swear, determination and hard work."
