My first career move via Facebook

By the time you read this post, I should be going through orientation at my new office.

Interestingly, I got this position via my Facebook networks.

During the week I was posting on my Facebook status that I was looking for a move from my previous stint at EASTWEST Public Relations as their Digital Media specialist, I was contacted by one of the founders of this new company in Facebook.

He was surprised that we had 35 mutual connections, hence, he might be wondering, do we know each other?

The first connection was made and I was invited down to the office for a demo of the service the company had for the social media space.

After reading several of my status updates, the meeting turned into an interview for the position of Social Media Consultant at this company.

From the discussions I had after two interviews, I judged that this new one would allow me to make full use of my experience in my previous jobs to my advantage here.

Its going to be a new beginning for 2009 and I will share with you more details about this new position and company that I have joined later.

Again, I would like to thank the friends and connections who helped post my CV on their networks in that two weeks. And also for being my friend on Facebook, otherwise, I wouldn’t get to join this new company.

Happy 2009 and have a great day ahead!
