Facebook Users May Find Looking For Jobs A Lot Easier

Posted by kap07 on July 14, 2012

According to a recent Mashables’ article, Facebook is looking into creating a job board on their popular social networking site. It is still not noted as to how they are going to implement it. It will be very interesting to see how this effects LinkedIn, which has taken over as one of the top places for job seekers to use online. The article mentions that there is no need for LinkedIn to worry. With the economy the way it is, perhaps the job board will be another outlet for job seekers to search for employment opportunities. Although,  like any new app on Facebook, it will take time to see if this will in fact cause a drive in traffic- especially  for LinkedIn users who may be skeptical on its effectiveness and quality since LinkedIn currently has a large amount of success among users and employers.
