Facebook is Testing a Resume Feature to Help People Find Jobs

According to Mashable and The Next Web, social media platform Facebook is testing a resume feature. Facebook users have long been able to put their work details in their profile, but this more focused interest in job searching and recruiting puts the network into more direct competition with employment-oriented LinkedIn.

This resume feature would enable people to put more details about their work experience. Screenshots indicate these more comprehensive summaries won't necessarily be visible on your public profile, which (according to The Next Web) suggests "Facebook is considering making the hidden resume details available exclusively to job hunters and talent seekers." A Facebook spokesperson confirmed they are testing the work histories feature to help companies hire and people find jobs.
