The new Timeline profile format on Facebook has made it more job-search friendly than ever. It is effectively your resume. That’s right. From the giant cover image at the top to the chronological organization down the line, your Facebook profile is a resume for your life, not just your career.
With Timeline, employers can learn more about users by searching specific time frames and seeing how the details mesh together. Ultimately, Facebook is going to become the go-to site for more curious employers and clients. Personalized and manicured Timelines are simply going to be more attractive.
