Can social media get you a job?

OMG!! I was offered a job in the area of my liking via social media!

The story goes like this: I had "liked" Jaipur literature Festival's page on facebook. So, I was able to see notifications of that page on my wall.

One post on my wall was an advertisement about a marketing-cum-content writing position in Uprack! This appeared on my wall because they had too liked that page!

I talked to them and  bingo! They hired me(Not in the strictest sense, but in a way. Will explain that in another post.)

As of now, I am excited as I will get an opportunity to do some reading and writing for some body else.

Hopefully, should be able to devote the time required for this venture
