Move Over, LinkedIn, Facebook Opens the Facebook Jobs Board App to a Tidal Wave of ‘Help Wanted’ Job Postings

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Looking for a job? You now need look no further than Facebook, thanks to the launch of the “Social Job Partnership”, Facebook’s new “help wanted” job app. That said, even though it is technically a Facebook job app, you access it through your regular Facebook account. The Facebook Social Job Partnership app is a cooperative venture between Facebook, Monster.com, Jobvite, BranchOut, DirectEmployers Association, and Work4Labs, and aggregates all of the job postings from these initial five job sites.

Even though it was just launched this week, the Facebook job board already has over 1.7 million job postings.

Explains Stephane Le Viet, CEO of Work4Labs, “Today’s launch of the Social Jobs Application highlights what we’ve known all along — that both recruiters and job seekers benefit when jobs are posted where candidates spend their time, and research overwhelmingly tells us that this is on Facebook.”

And clearly employers are paying attention to that research, for better or worse. In fact, and job seekers take note of this: according to a survey done by the Social Jobs Partnership, 87 percent of recruiters indicated that the number one way to get on their company’s radar is to “Like” their company’s Facebook page.
