New Social Referral Site Shows Where Your Friends Work and What Jobs are available

NEW YORK, NY – Job seekers should never job hunt alone. Studies show that people are 3-4 times more likely to be hired when they get a personal referral from someone who works there. A new service from the social recruiting company CareerCloud.com, lets you see where your Facebook friends and Linkedin connections are employed so you can easily ask for a referral.

The free web service aptly named Jobs with Friends, is located at friends.careercloud.com. New users simply sync their Facebook & Linkedin connections and the system organizes all companies in their network. You can then check for available jobs at each firm and if you see one that’s interesting, ask that friend for a referral. They’ll get a written request to refer you in their Facebook or Linkedin inbox. You can even upload a resume which your friend can download & submit to their Human Resources department.

“If I’m looking for a job, I’d rather start with a tool like this”, says CareerCloud CEO Chris Russell. “Being able to leverage one’s contacts is a much better way to look for work. Not only will it help you get hired faster but your friend will probably get a referral bonus from their employer. It’s a win-win.”

In addition to the social referral system the site has several other useful features;

-Invite your friends to see where their connections work
-Search your entire network by name or company
-‘Ask what its like to work there’ message button
-Ability to hide certain friends you dont want to see
-One click research buttons to see company information on Google, Twitter, Youtube, etc
-Save any company, friend or job listing as a favorite
-Integration with Indeed.com, search all jobs and see whenever you have a connection there from Facebook or Linkedin

The service is completely private and nothing is posted to a users account or wall.

By 2025 there may be 100,000 jobs in the UAV industry

Written By: chrisr2 - Apr• 22•13

It probably wont be too long for drones to replace cameramen at football games or traffic copters that deliver you your morning traffic report. The FAA will open up civilian airspace in the USA in 2015 so that drones, or UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) can roam freely by a pilot on the ground.

Surely this move will give rise to a new industry. According to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, more than 70,000 new jobs (U.S.) will be created in the first three years following the integration of unmanned aircraft into the United States airspace system. Not surprisingly a new job board has sprung up to help staff this nascent industry.
