Recruiting & Social Media
If you're looking to fill a vacancy quickly and efficiently, posting a job on Facebook is a great way to do it. With over two billion active users, your job ad will reach a large audience quickly. And since Facebook is a social platform, candidates are likely already familiar with your company and its culture.
People are Already There
Facebook is an ideal place to post jobs because people are already spending time on it. That means that even if a qualified person doesn’t see your job ad, their family and friends can see it and pass it along.
Here’s another reason—it’s free! Nearly all job sites charge you to post an ad. So, a Facebook job listing is perfect for you if you have a limited budget. It shows up in search results for people searching Facebook for jobs. Your fans and followers can even share the job post for you, reaching an even wider audience without spending any money.
Suppose you want to reach a specific demographic or are not too active on Facebook. In that case, you can choose to target your audience by location and other demographics through paid ads. That way, you can ensure that your job post reaches the right people.
On top of all that, it’s also just…easy. Facebook has made posting a job a simple and intuitive experience. It can take less than five minutes to have a job ad live. You can communicate with applicants through Facebook Messenger, and those applicants can apply with a click of a button. Their information populates automatically from their Facebook profile, but they can edit their information before submitting it. Since it’s that simple, it’s sure to be popular with candidates and means you can choose from a larger pool of applicants.
