Recently, the Social Jobs Partnership launched its free ‘Social Jobs’ application on Facebook – listing more than 1.7 million open jobs. This Infographic from Work4Labs tells you everything you need to know about the new job board, including what it means for recruiters and how to get your jobs in front of the world’s largest source of candidates.
- There is now 1,000,000,000 users on Facebook – therefore everyone is on Facebook.
- On Facebook, you have the candidate’s attention – 1 in every 7 minutes spent online is spent on Facebook.
- Early adopters (such as L’Oreal) started using Facebook to recruit in 2010 – and with 84% of job seekers owning a Facebook account, recruiting is inherently social.
- Compared to LinkedIn (with 175 million members, and mainly white collar candidates), Facebook allows for a larger talent pool (1000 million members) to be used, and a more social approach.
