Why You Should Pay Attention to Glassdoor Inside Connections

Why You Should Pay Attention to Glassdoor Inside Connections By Barbara Safani, Career Solvers

Glassdoor recently launched Inside Connections, a Facebook application that allows users to find information on who their friends know at various companies. This information can be leveraged to build relationships and gain valuable introductions that could lead to job opportunities. At first glance, the platform appears very similar to two other Facebook applications, BranchOut and BeKnown, but Glassdoor offers something that is very unique and is not available on any of the top networking sites, including LinkedIn.

I have been recommending Glassdoor to my clients for several years because it offers a treasure trove of information on companies including self-reported salary information, reviews of companies from insiders, and information on the type of interview questions people have been asked at specific companies. But now, users can supplement this information with a new network of contacts that may be able to get them one step closer to the decision maker at a company they are interested in working for.

As a job seeker, you need every competitive edge you can find. Glassdoor has always been a great tool for career-related research. With the new networking features, I think it is a “must have” for anyone conducting a serious job search. You can watch a quick video on Glassdoor Inside Connections here.
