Organizations Centrally Manage Facebook and Website Job Posting within the Same Application
SAN FRANCISCO, June 11, 2012 – Jobscience Inc., the leader in Talent Management for the Social Enterprise, today announced a Facebook Job Board application for its Recruiting solution. This new social recruiting app enables corporations, staffing agencies, and executive search firms to post and manage job openings on their Facebook business page from within Jobscience’s Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Jobscience customers avoid the complexity and extra time needed to manage two separate job boards – one on their website and another on their Facebook page.
“Social networks have become essential tools for recruiting talent, but many firms still are struggling to figure out how to use them effectively for recruiting,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder of Jobscience. “Facebook is where millions of job seekers are – so companies need a simple and effective way to spread the word about employment opportunities within this popular network. Our new Facebook Job Board app simplifies the process so that companies can tap into the largest social network in the world - with very little extra effort.”
The next big thing in recruiting strategies is reaching a greater number of qualified candidates through social media networks, according to an April 2012 study conducted by Research Now. The research found that Facebook continues to gain importance as a recruiting tool as it is cited as the second most important social media network – after LinkedIn. The same study found that 36% of corporate recruiters expect to use Facebook more this year than they did in 2011.
“Team Member Referrals are our highest source for new hires. Facebook is a friendly place for team members to tap their personal connections,” said Concetta Lewis, People Team Lead, Daxko. “The Jobscience Facebook Job Board application provides an easy way for team members to let their Facebook connections know about employment opportunities at Daxko and direct them to not only our company Facebook page but also a page that contains information about our open positions where they can immediately apply.”
Online recruiting research lab Potentialpark found that HR professionals prefer interacting with students, graduates and early career professionals on Facebook. (Source: Potentialpark Online Talent Attraction & Communication Study, 2011). The report found that few students and graduates have accounts on business networks, such as LinkedIn, and they don’t update their profile and network as often as they do on their Facebook profile. The study surveyed more than 30,000 students and graduates worldwide and analyzed the online career presence of more than 500 companies in the US, Europe and Asia.
The Jobscience Facebook Job Board app is immediately available as part of the Jobscience Recruiting Spring ’12 Release. Current Jobscience Recruiting customers can use the app for no additional charge.
