Facebook may launch a job board for its users
LinkedIn has grown in recent years become the main reference for professional social networks, creating spaces for discussion and consultation for all skill levels. This platform was able in a short time a user base who consider it the best environment to share experiences with professional peers as well as show their knowledge and, ultimately, be open to interesting esuchar a job offer.
But this was far from a bulletin board at work. As much as LinkedIn has found an interesting facet displaying ads through its internal mail, experienced referents of Social Media (should we ignore them?) Argue that this network is not magic and it does not work like the newspaper classified ads, but that requires extensive work to build a profile, with specific and verifiable experiences, as well as recommendations shared contact and answers as an expert in any category that position our profile, ie networking.
What Facebook is directly intended to launch an official bag jobs, based on the niche created by companies that specialize in job search as BranchOut, Work4 and Jobvite, all social network presence, according to Dow Jones report which discussed this news.
For the project materialize on Facebook, the social network approaching 1,000 million global users, could become a long line of unemployed around the world looking to find their daily bread, something I do not see a dim at all as it could be a great tool to avoid the costs generated by the job search for a person who is unemployed.
Now that this becomes a threat to LinkeIn would be true if this network had a pillar of its growth and consolidation of the job search market, which is far from being as in general, and can be seen in searches that are activated daily, far from providing initial administrative jobs, trades or workers, demand usually cover more than 90% of the job market.
