Facebook Launches Social Jobs App

A new Facebook application has been launched by the Social Jobs Partnership enables Facebook users to find and share employment opportunities. The app provides a central location where recruiters post open positions sorted by industry, location and skills. The app launched yesterday with more than 1.7 million employment opportunities provided by BranchOut, DirectEmployers, Work4Labs, Jobvite and Monster.com.

The Social Jobs Partnership includes the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the DirectEmployers Association, the National Association of State Workforce Agencies and Facebook.

Facebook functions more like a search tool and is not hosting the job listings. Users find jobs through the app but are directed to other sites for more information on the job listings.
