Facebook Now Allows Job Postings On Pages
Facebook is taking LinkedIn head on with its new feature. The popular social network will now allow companies to post job listings on Facebook Pages. People can now apply for a job on Facebook thanks to the new feature that allows business owners to post job vacancies on their Facebook Pages. The service, which will be made available starting Wednesday, will make the process of looking for a job or finding the right employee easier.
Facebook Pages is a popular feature of the social network. In fact, it counts 65 million different businesses worldwide using the service as a form of promotion and a way to transact business. Facebook is set to make Pages even more useful for business owners especially those in need of qualified people to fill up vacancies in their company.
Business Insider noted that job seekers may click "Like" on a company they are interested in and job listings from the said business will appear on the user's News Feed making it easier to spot potential employment in their preferred companies. Once a Facebook user sees one job opening to his or her liking, the user can simply click on the "Apply" button. An option to autofill the application form will appear which will take information from the user's Facebook profile. The company or business can then contact the applicant through Facebook Messenger so the whole application and hiring process can be completed online.
As for the companies themselves, they can increase exposure or visibility of their job postings by paying for it. The service is actually the result of a survey done among small business owners in the U.S. Facebook commissioned the survey which indicated that the number one problem of businesses is finding the right employees. This topped other issues such as getting more customers and increasing sales.
According to Venture Beat, job postings on Facebook Pages will initially be available in the United States and Canada. This is not the first time that Facebook is releasing a new feature that is similar with an existing one. Aside from sparking a rivalry with LinkedIn, Facebook has also introduced a Snapchat-like feature in the form of the Messenger Camera late last year.
