In the past, Facebook users have dreaded potential employers seeing their profiles, but the social media giant is trying to change that with the new Facebook job postings on Pages. Through the new feature, companies can post jobs on their Facebook Page and users can apply to the position directly within the platform, streamlining a process that was already taking place to a degree.
Businesses use Facebook for a variety of reasons, including building a customer base, organizing contest and specials, and updating loyal customers with relevant information. Businesses have also used Facebook to post about jobs in the past, leaving contact information and application instructions for hopeful employees. The new Facebook job postings simply migrate the application directly onto Facebook Pages, with many of the sections of those preliminary applications being filled out automatically thanks to the info people have already included on their profiles.
