Finding a job is difficult, but Identified is a new service that wants to help you build a professional network on the back of the social network you likely already use: Facebook. The recently launched professional search service uses your Facebook information to build a professional profile for you, give you a numerical score (that can be improved by providing more data,) and connect you with businesses that your friends and personal network already work for.
There’s a lot to like about Identified: it uses your actual personal network to build a professional profile that’s indicative of the people you actually know. Sign in with Facebook, and the service pulls down your work history, your education, and the depth and breadth of your personal network to assign you a numerical score. You can improve that score by adding more information about yourself that will make you more attractive to recruiters and companies already using the service to find prospects or inviting your friends.
