Facebook, Linked-In add new widgets for job seekers, especially for people who don't know they're looking


Facebook will help you find a job, even if you aren’t looking, according to a Washington Post story Friday by Abha Bhattarai.   It will provide widgets to enable you to apply for jobs from Facebook, based on your likes and behaviors.

It would sound conceivable that this could put me in touch with news outlets to become a “real” journalist at 73.

But I wouldn’t look at conventional sales jobs.  Being interested in classical music doesn’t make me want to call people to get them to buy concert subscriptions (any more).

Linked-In wants you to apply for jobs on its site under your boss’s nose, story by Jena McGregor here.
