Work For Us App Brings Job Hunting to Facebook

Facebook can now be a job board with a new application, Work For Us, which allows Page administrators to install a tab on their Page to collect potential hires’ information.

The app’s basic version is free for 30 days and allows brands to post jobs on their Pages and automatically create Facebook ads advertising these jobs; Facebook users, on the other hand, can apply for jobs right on this Facebook tab and socialize on Facebook with their potential future employers.

The app was created by Work4Labs, which specializes in recruiting and human resources and according to our AppData tool Work For Us already has almost 11,000 monthly active users, including some listed on the company’s site: Accenture, Monitronics and Amadeus. New and innovative apps are frequently discussed in depth in our premium service, Inside Facebook Gold.

The company has several tiers of service plans, which vary in the number of job slots that may be posted each month and the corresponding number of Facebook ads that will be generated. The Free version, for example, includes 1 monthly job slot, unlimited users and no Facebook ads, whereas the Max version (the most pricey plan) includes unlimited jobs, $1,500 in free ads and unlimited users for $499 a month. Other plans range from $9 monthly to $199.

From a user standpoint, the app is pretty simple. Take SPG Creative & Marketing as an example; one just visits the Work for us tab on a given Page and sees and easy-to-read list of available jobs. Clicking on the job title yields a more substantive description and one may Share the job or Like it to help Facebook friends who may be looking for a new gig. There’s also a search box to more easily sift through the openings and the option of searching for an internship, temporary or permanent job.
