Social media affords businesses the opportunity to alleviate some of the cost associated with recruiting new employees. Have you ever posted an open position on Facebook? It’s super easy and FREE! By clicking on the “Manage Jobs” tab on your company’s Facebook page you are able to create a job posting that will post directly to your company’s page. The template is user-friendly and allows for personalization such as images, salary ranges, job type, job description, and so much more. Once the position is created, it is posted directly to your businesses Facebook page.
To reach a larger, targeted audience, “boost” the job posting by clicking on the “Boost Post” button. There is a fee associated with the boosting service, but it is still very minimal and allows you to choose demographics and location. Once your business’s job is posted, interested individuals can apply directly to your position on Facebook and you can manage them under the “Manage Jobs” tab. It is simple, cost effective, and it works!
