***CLOSED: Congrats to Heather on winning!***
Graduation sucks. Not only do you have to leave college and find a job, but you also have to add so many annoying buzzwords and phrases to your everyday vocabulary. “Business casual” and “informational interview” and “networking” start rolling off your tongue by the time you pick up your cap and gown. And by the time you try on that heinous pantsuits your aunt got you, you can’t even remember a time before you were on LinkedIn. But you can’t let the job hunt (and annoying “what you going to do after graduation?!” questions) get you down. Not when there are apps like BeKnown that are trying to make the whole thing as easy as possible.
“Monster.com recently launched BeKnown, a professional networking app for Facebook. Since young professionals spend more time on Facebook than any other networking site, Monster wanted to give young people the opportunity to network professionally within the world’s largest and most popular social network. BeKnown allows you to set up a professional profile directly on Facebook that is completely separate from your personal Facebook page (think along the lines of a network within a network). It also lets you conduct a job search of Monster’s database of jobs without ever leaving BeKnown or Facebook. By tapping into the networks of their Facebook friends, young professionals can easily connect, send messages, and see who among their existing contacts is connected to a company or job opportunity they are interested in.” Check it out here!
They’re so excited to help you out that they’re giving away an iPhone 4s AND a $100 Spafinder gift card! They will both match perfectly with the leather bound briefcase that some ancient family friend will give you for graduation. Want to win? Here’s how:
