Facebook: A New Job Market

Facebook’s large number of users and pages has made it an incredible recruiting opportunity for employers. To allow employers to take advantage of the billions of people who use Facebook, the company now offers the opportunity for employers to post job openings on Facebook. Employers can post jobs that can easily be found on the company page or in the new jobs bookmark. Facebook has outlined the benefits to using Facebook for hiring as including:

  • Posting your openings quickly – Complete a few details about the role like title and responsibilities and you’re all set.

  • Sharing your story with applicants – Job posts appear on your Page and link to your Page, so people have the chance to explore your Page and learn more about your business before applying, ensuring you get informed applicants.

  • Reviewing and responding to applications on the go – After posting a job, you will be able to review applications and contact applicants anywhere, anytime through Messenger.

  • Reaching qualified people – Like other posts, you can boost your job posts to reach a larger or more targeted audience.

This development promises to be a wonderfully effective recruiting tool for employers looking to hire. Will Facebook lead to your new star employee?
