The new app is part of the company’s Social Jobs Partnership initiative, which was formed in the fall of 2011 in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor and several other labour organizations. It allows users to search the jobs database by keyword and location in areas including IT/Software Development, Science/Engineering/R&D; and Security/Protective Services. Jobs are classified into different groups and each group has its specific jobs so that users can search for the most wanted ones that they have been looking for.
The app includes job listings from Monster.com, Work4Labs, BranchOut and the DirectEmployers Association. By allowing job seekers to view and share job openings based on personalized criteria, like location and industry, the Social Jobs Application builds on our broader effort to help people use social media to find jobs in the US.
“No doubts, the app’s launch is going to enhance the searching and hiring process of companies throughout social media”, said Ste’phane Le Viet, CEO of website Work4Labs. “The social media development for sure will bring employees and employers close to each other than ever”. Work4labs is one of the organizations that helps Facebook in fulfilling the job lists and searching out the employers to post on this social network”.
