In a move to compete with LinkedIn, Facebook is rolling out facebook.com/jobs to help people find jobs and help local businesses hire the right people with the ability to apply to jobs directly on Facebook.
Facebook already introduced job postings on Facebook in the US and Canada last year. Today, it expands the service to apply to jobs directly on Facebook to more than 40 countries.
Finding a job is quick, easy and free. You can find jobs in the Jobs dashboard at facebook.com/jobs and the “Jobs” option in the “Explore” section on mobile, by clicking the Jobs icon in Marketplace, or visiting the Jobs tab of a business’ Page. When you’re ready to apply for a role, you can create an application, which will populate with job history and other information in your Facebook profile. You can edit your application before you submit it. Once you finish applying, a Messenger conversation will open with the business’ Page so you can have direct contact with the employer and confirm when your information has been received.
Meanwhile, businesses can attract the right applicants and hire quickly, easily and affordably by posting job openings to a Jobs tab on their Page with details like job title, job type (full-time, intern, part-time), salary and more. Job posts will appear in multiple places on Facebook, including on a business’ Page, in the Jobs dashboard, in Marketplace, and in News Feed. Job posts can appear in News Feed similar to other Page posts, and businesses can choose to boost posts to reach the right candidates. Businesses can also manage their applications and communicate with applicants, including scheduling interviews and sending automated reminders, directly through Messenger.
