How Will Facebook Job Boards Impact Businesses?
Facebook is certainly stretching its legs into the business world. Rumors of Facebook launching its own job boards later this summer, possibly in response to other professional groups’ postings, could have a huge impact on recruitment for companies. How could this vast social network of nearly one billion help or hinder searches?
Facebook’s launch might be a strategic response to the growing popularity of LinkedIn, which is prevalent among the very specific crowd of business professionals. Facebook does a great job connecting and engaging with young people and will want to find ways to expand that notion. Facebook’s rumored job boards could very well make a significant impact on how recruiters, small business owners, and employees worldwide find good fits. With its expansive network, Facebook could be primed to make a large impact on hiring and job-hunting if it manages to employ this new idea correctly.
