More and more recruiters are finding candidates through social media than the traditional job boards. Most people have heard of LinkedIn which remains the most popular site for recruiters when they search for candidates. It is a must for all active and passive job seekers to have an up-to-date LinkedIn profile.
I came across a new site the other day called beBee http://www.bebee.com which seems to offer a lot of promise. While it is not nearly as well-known as LinkedIn, it seems like a site that most potential job seekers should be on.
beBee is a Personal Branding Platform founded by serial-entrepreneurs Javier Cámara and Juan Imaz. The network was created to allow people to showcase and share their personal brand and market themselves to employers, clients, customers, vendors and media in their respective industries. beBee allows users to network with each other through common personal and professional interests, uniting their personal and professional lives in one place.
The startup was established in February 2015, and originally launched in English, Spanish and Portuguese before expanding in French, Italian, German and Russian in 2016. beBee has more than 11.5 million users and is aiming to have 40 million users by 2018.
While my experience with beBee is limited, it seems like a well-managed and easy-to-use site.
