Bernard Hodes Group, a provider of integrated talent solutions, announced today it has created a new application that will allow job seekers to view job opportunities on a company’s Facebook Page Wall as well as in their personal news stream.
The Hodes Instream Jobs Facebook application is being touted as an industry first, since prior to this product, companies would typically post hyperlinked job opportunities with job titles and brief descriptions that when clicked, would take a job seeker away from Facebook and onto a careers web site.
Now candidates can perform job searches and applies on Facebook without having to leave the site. They will be able to view the entire job description, not just a snippet.
In addition to these features, job seekers who ‘like’ a company will find that the company’s job postings show up in their news stream.
Any photos or videos the employer adds to the postings will also be viewable on Facebook.
The Hodes Instream Jobs Facebook application can also be fully branded to fit within company brand and style guidelines.
“This is an application that will revolutionize how candidates find and apply for job opportunities through Facebook,” said Kane Cochran, director of digital innovation and mobile, Bernard Hodes Group. “Now, companies with critical and specific job openings can engage with candidates at their point of contact on the company’s Facebook wall.”
The Bernard Hodes Group also offers a suite of social recruiting solutions in tandem with the new application, including Job Search and Share, a job search application for Facebook Pages, AroundHere, a locations map mashup with jobs and hyper-local information, and Social JobMatcher, a social plug-in for job recommendations and referrals.
