Typically when you think of a Job Posting site, Facebook is not the first place that comes to mind, however they hope to be- and it makes sense. Facebook is already the social media giant, with 1.23 billion daily active users on average so why not try to cultivate some job applications there?
With this new feature you can. Pages will now have the ability to post Job Listings and receive applications from potential candidates. Applications will be sent by Facebook via Messenger, and will come pre-populated with the applying user’s Facebook information, however they can alter and update it as needed.
In a competitive and slightly unexpected move, these posts are free for employers to publish and there is no limit to how many posts a Page can have. This feature will be part of your “Write Something” box, and will slowly roll out to the U.S. and Canada so if you don’t see the feature just yet don’t panic.
How to Get Started
Step One: Head over to your Facebook Business Page and locate the “Write Something” box. Look to the bottom and click “See All”.
Step Two: Clicking “See All” should reveal more options, locate and click on “Publish a Job Post”
Step Three: In the pop up window you will be able to include all necessary information for your Job Post as well as a Live Preview.
Be sure to fill out all information and make your post eye catching. The image will default to your Cover Photo however you may want to pick something that will stand out more to someone searching for a job.
Step Four: When you have finished click “Publish Job Post”. A window will appear letting you know your post has been approved and that it will appear on Facebook.
Step Five: Your Job post will appear on your Pages Timeline.
