Facebook Job Posts: How to express your INTEREST!
It has come to light that a lot of genuine job seekers may have gotten a job they’re interested in if only they’d taken an extra step after commenting “interested”. Here, I hope to help shed some light on what you should do after commenting “interested” or dropping your phone number and email address as comments on job posts.
SO, if you’re interested in a job post, what do you do? Obviously you’ll react “like” or “love” or “wow” on it. But if you’re really really interested then you go ahead and comment down your phone number and email address. Or you just comment “interested”.
A lot of things may happen when you do that. The company posting the job will never see your comment as thousands of people are also commenting their email addresses and phone numbers. Also, scammers can also be able to get your email address and phone number and then you get to receive a lot of scam emails, texts and calls and you start complaining to the mobile service provider.
If you’re really really really interested…
This is what you should do. Since humans are more prone to follow steps and procedures, I’ll list them down for you:
- Don’t comment that you’re interested. Don’t even leave your email addresses or phone numbers as comments on the post. You don’t know who is out there. They might get your contact details and mislead you. They might con you into spending thousands of kina in your desperation to look for a job.
- The best thing for you to do when you’re interested in a job would be to get more details about the job. While reading through the job advert, try to answer questions like:
- Are they after someone with a specific skill? Maybe I have that skill which increases the chance of me landing an interview with the company.
- Most importantly, when is the due date for applications?
- If you’re after experience, pay may not be important at the moment but you still need food to survive so look at the pay grade. Is it what you would want?
I would like to stress on getting their addresses because there’s a secret with that. Its no secret you’ll send your job application to those addresses. But the secret is to just send an email asking them for more information about the job advert.
There is always one or two information that HR people don’t always put on the job advert. This is for them to pick out a few among the thousands of applications they will have to check out first. So when you call/email asking for something along the lines of what they purposely didn’t put out then automatically you will be shortlisted before you even send your job application.
To close off, be a smart job seeker. Empowered with this knowledge, you can now go out there and try it out on a few jobs. But before you do, here’s a tool to help you. Build your resume online now with our online resume builder.
