Facebook is the biggest social network by a landslide. There were over 2.3 billion active users as of the second quarter of 2018, which means nearly a third of the world now has a Facebook account. The number of features has grown immensely, with one of the newer ones being Facebook Jobs. Here’s what you need to know about it and how it can aid you in your job search.
What is Facebook Jobs?
Facebook Jobs allows you to conveniently search for available positions in your area. You can:
- Choose the location and adjust the search radius
- Select the job type (full time, part time, internship, etc.)
- Filter by industry
- Search for a particular type of job (e.g., forklift operator)
Scroll through the results and look for jobs that interest you and fit with your skill set. Once you find something appealing, click on “Apply Now” and input relevant information. The great thing is Facebook will auto-fill most of this information, so you don’t have to go through and spend a lot of time.
How Can I Use Facebook Jobs During My Job Search?
As long as you already have a Facebook account, you simply visit the Facebook Jobs page. Search through all relevant positions it displayed based on your location, or adjust the settings to meet any specific criteria you may have. Apply for the position(s) that interest you, and you can communicate with hiring managers directly through the platform. The whole process is very user-friendly.
Benefits of Facebook Jobs
This is an excellent resource for streamlining your job search. It prevents going through a lot of the burdensome steps typically involved with the process. That way you can get in touch with more recruiters in less time. It’s also ideal if you’re in the light industrial/manufacturing industry.
“If you’re a blue-collar worker and afraid to create a LinkedIn profile because of your experience, this is the perfect solution for you,” says author and recruiting expert Robbie Abed in Entrepreneur. “No need to create a resume that you don’t like to create anyway, and it allows you to easily apply for jobs.
Tapping Into a New Resource
Odds are you already use Facebook to stay in touch with friends and family. So why not use it as part of your job search as well? Facebook Jobs is simple, free and can help you find a rewarding position.
