Facebook Jobs Looking to Strengthen Marketplace

With more than a third of Americans using Facebook Marketplace, the tech giant is working to improve the content making up its job search function, according to a news release from the company.

In the release, Facebook stated its plans to add more professional-level jobs by adding content from direct employers through a variety of applicant tracking systems. 

A few other key takeaways from Facebook’s announcement include:

  • The company is partnering with enterprise HR companies like SAP SuccessFactors to combine the ease and convenience of hiring tools with the expansive reach of Jobs on Facebook
  • Employers can now easily create job posts and manage applications through these applicant tracking systems.
  • Applications from job seekers on Facebook will now be sent directly to a partner’s tool for a more seamless review experience
