Facebook is starting to let users apply for jobs directly through the platform, putting it in closer competition with business networks like LinkedIn. In a blog post published today, the company said it’s trying to make it easier for businesses to recruit the right employees directly through their pages.

Starting today, the company will let businesses post job openings on their pages or in a new jobs bookmark so Facebook users can apply directly through the website or app.

Page admins will be able to create a jobs post, track applicants or communicate with them via Facebook Messenger.
