Since February 2017, Facebook has hosted jobs from over 60 million businesses on their job board. Bringing competition to LinkedIn and job search sites such as Indeed and ZipRecruiter, Facebook has become a one stop shop for connecting with friends and family, meeting people, and finding a great new opportunity. In this post, we’ll explore a few reasons it’s a great place to find your next gig.

3 Reasons Why Facebook is a Great Place to Find a Job

Checkout a wide variety of jobs 

Facebook boasts an impressive 23 categories of jobs, ranging from accounting and finance, to construction, to transportation (and everything in between). With such a diverse selection of jobs, there’s something for everyone. Not only that, but you’re able to filter between job type, depending on if you’re looking for full/part time, contract or volunteer based, or an internship.  

Apply easily through the app 

More than two billion people around the world own a smartphone. The ability to search for jobs on your phone has become a requirement for many job seekers. Facebook’s user-friendly application process, whether utilized on the web or on the mobile app, is one reason that 25% of people in the U.S. have searched for or found a job on Facebook.  

Auto-populate your resume 

Once you decide on a couple jobs you want to apply to, Facebook will pull information from your profile to create a short resume. It’s important to make sure your profile is up-to-date with your recent experience, any relevant education, and where you currently live to make it easier for recruiters to learn about you.
