Facebook Inc's (FB) Job Application Feature Expands Internationally

  • Facebook is new hiring — for everyone

Facebook launched its Jobs tab on Pages just over a year ago in the U.S. and Canada, and later partnered with ZipRecruiter to help feed more job posts onto its platform. It enables users to search and apply for jobs at local businesses.

The job posts feature has been rolled out in 40 countries as part of the company's goal to play a more meaningful role in people's lives.

In a survey of 5,000 adults, one in four people in the United States said they searched for or found a job using Facebook.

Users in the USA and Canada have been able to see job postings on Facebook since previous year.

Businesses can now quickly create a job posting using the Facebook app, and will also let hiring managers sift through prospects just as easily. Once you finish your application, a conversation through Messenger will be automatically generated between you and the company's Business page.

Severed body parts found in Japan
The woman was last seen walking with the suspect, who was arrested last week after she was reported missing by her family. Police reportedly plan to serve a new warrant for the American's arrest for the disposal and damaging of a body.

This functionality can now be used by job-seekers and businesses alike in more than 40 countries across the globe.

Facebook is wagering that by offering a free and basic process, it can pick up footing regardless of rivalry from more settled jobs destinations. Once the user makes all the required selections and clicks on subscribe, they will then be notified if there is a relevant job opening in the pre-set radius.

Facebook will attempt to "close the gap" for lower-skilled "blue collar" job applicants who would more likely be looking for jobs on Facebook, rather than LinkedIn.

Businesses, in the interim, can make job postings from their Page that incorporate subtle elements, for example, job compose, pay data and area. More recently, we've seen Facebook attempt to take the fight to LinkedIn by hosting job listings. It helps you to find job vacancies and openings in nearby industries. Job posts will appear in multiple places on Facebook, including on a business' Page, in the Jobs dashboard, in Marketplace, and in News Feed.

Only the information you provided and the ones publicly visible on your Facebook page will be visible to potential employers. It said local businesses account for over 60 percent of new job postings. Once a business posts a job, managers can go through the applicants and directly reach out through the Messenger app. And in 2018 we plan to invest the same amount in more teams, technology, and new programs. From sending money to friends to getting rid of stuff you're not using, Facebook has rolled out a number of different services to become a one-stop shop of sorts.
