Step aside, LinkedIn. Facebook wants to make the process of finding a job — or filling an open position at your company — a little easier.
The social network on Wednesday announced new tools to connect job seekers with companies looking for hires.This looks to be the official launch of a pilot program we got wind of back in November last year.
Businesses in the US and Canada can now post job openings on their pages, and job seekers can browse these opportunities via a new jobs bookmark as well as alongside other posts on business pages. Job openings may also start to appear in your news feed.
Facebook is making it super easy to apply for jobs you see on the service. No more filling out page after page of information about yourself and your work history: When you spot a job opening that suits you, just click the Apply Now button and a form will open that's pre-populated with information from your Facebook profile. You can review and edit your information before submitting it.
As for the businesses posting the job listings, not only do they open up the potential for many more people to see the job due to the size of Facebook's user base, they can also contact potential applicants directly using Messenger.
Facebook said it will be rolling out these new resources over the next few weeks.
Before applying to jobs on the social network, just be sure to check out the public version of your Facebook profile and remove any questionable photos or posts that might turn off potential employers.
