Present day job hunters should leverage their Facebook network to make their job searchers more relevant, says Ranjan Sinha, Co-founder and Chairman, MyParichay.

MyParichay, he says, is a group of HR professionals and computer scientists who help people achieve their career potential allowing users to leverage their social network connections in a private and secure manner.

According to him, there are around 32 million people on Facebook in the 20-24 age group in India alone and around 28 million in the 25-34 age bracket compared to a little over 18 million members in LinkedIn. “This generation of young professionals in the 20-30 age group rely largely on Facebook for their job searches. When recruiters share a job opening, it is propagated through this network.”

“Facebook may not be viewed as a professional networking media, but one’s professional data is embedded in it,” Sinha said.

“Further, Facebook has four times more profiles than LinkedIn and 28 million more profiles in the prime hiring age,” he added.
