Leading job-search engine / job board Monster.com recently announced its participation in Facebook’s new application for the Social Jobs Partnership. The new app is in an effort to help the unemployed, underemployed and transitioning veterans by now making jobs easily available to millions of America’s Facebook users. It is a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), the Direct Employers Association (DE), the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) and Facebook.
“Our participation in the Social Jobs Partnership is a continuation of Monster’s strategy to expand our social presence and extend the ability for our customers and job seekers to connect to great opportunities,” said Matthew Mund, senior vice president of Product Management for Monster Worldwide. “We’re very excited to bring our unrivaled online recruitment expertise to the Social Jobs Partnership app and join Facebook in their effort to help get Americans back to work.”
The availability of Monster jobs on Facebook’s new app complements BeKnown™, Monster’s professional networking app, which is already on Facebook. When Facebook users find interesting jobs, they can use BeKnown to discover how they’re connected to the jobs through their extended network of BeKnown connections and Facebook friends.
With the addition of Monster, Facebook users can now:
View jobs from more than 400,000 Monster customers
Be sent to Monster.com to apply for jobs after clicking on a Monster job listing
View military-friendly and veteran-specific jobs from Monster and Military.com
Military.com, the largest community of military service men and women, veterans and their families, is also participating in the new Social Jobs Partnership app along with other 3rd party providers.
