Tip Sheet: What Facebook Jobs Has that LinkedIn Doesn’t
In the Worldcom Confidence Index business leaders across the globe cited employee recruitment and retention as a top challenge to business success. Many employers turn to platforms like LinkedIn to connect with new talent but often overlook Facebook Jobs as a recruitment tool. In doing so, they miss out on the valuable benefits the platform has over LinkedIn job postings.
Worldcom Partners, Sturges Word Communications, explains that numbers alone make Facebook Jobs worth exploring. With two billion active users per month, the platform offers a significantly wider net of potential applicants to employees than LinkedIn.
1 – POTENTIAL TO REACH NEW AUDIENCES
Facebook can help employers reach audiences who are not active on LinkedIn, but still relevant to their company. The Facebook Jobs platform has become particularly popular amongst small businesses seeking part-time, hourly and skilled labor roles.
While LinkedIn jobs focuses on resumés and thought-leadership, Facebook appeals to a wider audience – including people who may not be actively seeking a new job but may be open to one. Plus, users are given the option to share jobs with friends that may be interested or qualified.
