How to Use the New Facebook Jobs Feature to Find Your Next Career

Facebook has finally launched a job search feature … and it’s about time! The Job Seeker Nation surveys by JobVite have been stating for years that 67% of job seekers find jobs on Facebook. Given this information, it was good timing for Facebook to cater to the job-seeking market. If you’re not familiar with the Facebook jobs feature, here’s your tutorial so you can find your next great career.

START BY IMPROVING YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE

Be aware that employers will be able to review your profile and see what you’ve posted, so it’s time to clear out anything negative and create a polished presence. Well-written posts, positive thought leadership, and industry-specific content are all great ways to impress employers.

FIND JOBS

On the left side of your profile there is a “see more” tab that you can click. Select the Jobs tab; it will take you to a page that looks like this:

From there you can narrow down your search by location, industry, or job type.

SEARCH, SUBSCRIBE, AND APPLY

Search: In the top-left corner is a search bar where you can enter a search through the different positions using terms you want to find.

Subscribe: On the right-hand side you can subscribe to be notified of new job openings.

Apply: Unlike Google for Jobs, one of the best features is that you can apply directly from the Facebook page.

The application auto-fills job history and other profile data so you don’t have to start over with each application. You can also edit your information before you submit.

After submitting your application, a Facebook Messenger conversation opens up between you and the company Facebook page.

Here’s a tip: Follow the pages of companies that you’re interested in, read their news and announcements and do your research. It’s a major benefit during an interview to know the company, what they do, and why you’re a great fit.
