LinkedIn may be the professional social network but Facebook is fast becoming the new hub of social media activity for businesses. In that vein, Facebook has now introduced Job Posts. As a business, you can now list the vacancies that you are looking to fill on your Facebook page. Of course, there are some considerations that you have to make.
Since Facebook is the social network, you are likely to attract more applicants than perhaps you anticipate.
Therefore, filtration is important. Plus, just because you build it doesn’t mean they will come. Some businesses assume that because they have posted a job opening on Facebook means that candidates will come running. This is not the case. You have to generate some degree of awareness. Thankfully, there are some basic tips you can follow to be able to hire amazing employees with Facebook Job Posts. Here, we will share a few with you.
- Do individual posts for each position you’re hiring for. This will keep applicants from getting confused.
- Boost your post! Have your post be seen by many more people than it normally would by boosting it. Simply press the “Boost” button on your post to get started.
- Respond as quickly as possible after an application has been submitted. Don’t let your candidate slip away by waiting a few days to reply. It also looks unprofessional!
