Your Facebook Business Page can help you successfully find people to join your team. Once you find where you need to add information, its very straightforward. This step-by-step guide will help you post a job to Facebook successfully. These instructions and screenshots are written as if you are viewing them on a desktop or laptop. (Not from your phone.)
First, navigate to your Facebook Business Page.
And then look for one of two ways to Create a Job Post.
1) If you (or someone else at your company) has posted a job before, you will find this in the side bar:
Click Manage Jobs.
Then you will see a blue button in the main panel. Click "Create Job".
2) If you haven’t created a job posting in Facebook yet, then on your business page look in your news feed for this box, and click "Post a Job".
Now that you found where you can post a job, let’s create a Job Posting!
You should see this form in your sidebar, Fill in the form with these Job Details:
- Job Title
Choose from Full-time, Part-time, Internship, Volunteer, or Contract
- Job Description
This should be the responsibilities and preferred skills. It’s a text box so you can add detailed information.
- Work Location
Make sure to include the work location, as well as details if the job is Remote, Temporarily Remote, or on-site.
- Salary Range
Include details such as: Minimum Rate, Maximum Rate and whether the position is paid per hour, day, week, month, year.
You can also decide not to add salary information, by checking a box.
- Benefits, select from a wide variety of options including:
On the job training
Paid time off
Paid family and medical leave
Dependent care assistance
Flexible spending account
Health savings account
You can also add what type of schedule the position calls for. For instance a standard business schedule, Day shift, Swing shift, etc.
Plus how many hours per week the position requires.
- What I like is you can add screening questions. Such as
When are you available to start?
What's the best way to contact you?
Or your own custom questions that fit into your hiring process.
- Two other bonuses
You can receive applications by email to more than one person. That way you don’t have to rely on logging into Facebook to see if you have applicants.
You can choose to only take submissions from people who have a resume or past employment. This is especially helpful for job openings that require some qualifications.
- Finally, you'll want to add a photograph to help your Job Posting stand out. If you have photos of your location or can show what it’s like to work for your company using photos, that's even better.
Now that all your information is in, click “Next”.
On the following screen you will be asked to choose to post on Facebook jobs. You can also boost the post to people who are likely to be good candidates for the job. We recommend running a boosted Job Posting for 10 days. Your budget doesn’t have to be large. Sometimes just $25-50 is enough to get a variety of candidates.
See how easy it is to post your job opening on Facebook?
Your next question may be…. where are they posted?
The people who are likely to apply to your job opening may see job posts in their News Feed. Candidates who are actively seeking jobs click on the menu icon to view jobs. They can search for jobs by location, industry, or job type. They can also subscribe to get notified about new job openings.
As you can see, it's fairly easy to do this yourself. But if you or your team doesn't have the time to DIY this, give us a shoutor schedule a meeting. We have helped to successfully fill numerous positions.
