Ten Ways to Network for a New Job

Update your Facebook status.

If you're not currently employed, use the Facebook status feature to let the world know that you're looking for a new job. Write about the kind of work you want, your accomplishments, and your skills, stating those points clearly but briefly. When your Facebook friends know that information, they can more easily point you to the job you're seeking. And don't forget to "Like" potential employers' websites!

Don't give daily updates on your job search. They can be overwhelming — especially if you're having a hard time or feeling down.
