Facebook is improving its job tool to make it easier for businesses to manage job applications and hire people more efficiently this holiday season.
US retailers hired over 525,000 seasonal employees last year to help them with the holiday rush. To support demand during the holidays, recruiting the right people is crucial, and as such Facebook is improving its job tool “to help businesses hire more efficiently and more easily manage their job applications” through its platform.
Share Job Listings in Groups
It’s now possible to post a job listing to Groups, not just to post to a company Page, or having it appear in the Jobs bookmark and Marketplace. Users and Pages can also post job listings to the Groups they belong to, to reach as many people as possible who may be interested in a position and qualified for it.
Track Applications more efficiently in the Manage Jobs tab
Facebook is introducing a new set of tools in the Manage Jobs tab on Pages, that allow businesses to filter, sort and mark candidates as favourites. This helps them manage applications more efficiently, and all on mobile, of course.
Assign a Jobs Manager to handle incoming applications
In many businesses, the person doing the hiring is often not the Page admin. For this, Facebook is introducing a Jobs Manager role on Pages so that admins can “designate someone to post jobs and manage incoming applications.”
