Social Media 4 Recruitment

The Facebook Job Board

Leave a comment

Hopefully everyone has seen the new Facebook Job Board by now: https://www.facebook.com/socialjobs/app_417814418282098

The search is awful and the majority of jobs are in the US but nice to see how it works.

It’s currently aggregating jobs from the social jobs partnership (http://www.facebook.com/socialjobs) which currently includes Monster, Jobvite, BranchOut, US Jobs and Work4Labs.

We used to use Work4Labs to host our jobs but recently changed to Work Cast due to Work4Labs limiting the number of jobs they were showing and hiking up their prices.

To utilise the new job board we will need to change back – could be a worthwhile experiment, at least if not right now maybe in the new year?

Sharing my opinion– the demographics of FB will remain the same so it won’t pose a threat to LinkedIn. It could lead to a lot of irrelevant applications but potentially very good for grad and junior level roles.
