It can be hard to find the right person to fill your new job opening. Fortunately, an unlikely hero has emerged: Facebook. Over 1.45 billion people visit Facebook on a daily basis. You need to reach people where they’re spending most of their time. Facebook now lets you post job opportunities on your business page for free.
New job posts will appear on your business page when you post them. There is now also a Jobs tab visitors can use to view all your job postings. Potential new employees can learn more about your business before applying to your job to make sure it’s a good fit for both parties.
In addition to being on your Facebook business page, new job listings will also show up in the job marketplace. Users can go here and search for their field to find all jobs in their area. This is a great source to find new local talent for free.
When setting up the position, you have the option to ask Yes/No Questions, Free-Test Questions, and Multiple Choice Questions. You can use these fields to learn more about the applicant or to make sure they have specific requirements.
Once someone has applied for the position you have posted you will be notified by email and as a Facebook notification.You can respond to them from a desktop or a smartphone keeping them in the loop no matter where you are. You can also keep track of their status right on their application as well as even schedule an interview through Facebook.
If you aren’t finding many applicants, you can easily “boost” the job across Facebook. This is a paid advertisement where you can really narrow down who sees the job posting. Narrowing down the search and getting your ad seen more will help bring in more qualified applicants.
If you’re looking to hire on any new employees, be sure to check out Facebook’s job posts. The free listing will help at least get the word out. If you need any assistance getting started, just give us a call at (800) 990-5811 and we will gladly help you out!
