EeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeCHK! That's the sound of nails on a chalkboard, which is what this question is like for me. Facebook is GREAT! I'm a huge advocate of it, however, misuse of it can make you appear to be desperate and annoying. If you are available and want your Facebook friends to know, here is a good strategy:
"Just finishing Spielberg's latest film and looking forward to the next opportunity!"
Here's a typical and BAD strategy:
"I'm available for work as a (insert your job). Please call if you need someone."
"Still looking for work."
"Looking for work, still nothing!"
No joke... I've seen this and like I said-- nails on a chalkboard.
I'm not going to tell you what to post on Facebook, but I will tell you to think about the message you're putting out to the world, because once you write it down, even if you delete it, like Sally told Harry, "you can't take it back because it's already out there!"
