Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg says her company will hire thousands over the next year.
Looking for a job? Facebook is hiring but you might have to be willing to move to the East Coast.
The Palo Alto-based social-networking site is expanding its East Coast operations based in New York City.
Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said Facebook will be adding thousands of new jobs in the next year.
Currently Facebook has abuot 3,000 employees spread out across its Palo Alto and Menlo Park locations. It employs about another 100 people in New York City.
But Sandberg said the company plans to expand its Madison Avenue campus dramatically by putting together its first East Coast engineering office.
And Facebook is already accepting applications for the openings.
It is expected to be a big year for Facebook. It is widely anticipated that Mark Zuckerberg will take the company public in 2012 with an IPO valued at over $100 billion.
