The White House has partnered with job board Monster.com to reach out to job seekers through a social media platform, according to an article published today on Mashable.

With mid-term elections over, the White House is aiming to pick the brains of job seekers and get an idea of what their main concerns are right now.

Starting Monday, November 8, through Sunday, November 14, members of the Monster.com community and job seekers can go to Monster’s Facebook page where they can ask the Obama administration job-related questions.

Questions that receive the most buzz, along with the most ‘likes,’ will be answered by the White House. Videotaped responses will then be posted online for participants to see.

As of noon today EST, a host of questions have already been posted, including this one by Sherry Chupka. “How can people retrain themselves for higher paying jobs when they are already working?” Chupka writes. “My husband and I have 4 jobs between the two of us. We each have a full time job and a part time job. We have 3 teenage sons and right now there’s no money left for savings at the end of each month. Between medical bills and grocery bills there is just nothing left.”

This is not the first time the White House has turned to social media to get users’ attention. In the past, President Obama has used Twitter and YouTube to answer questions from citizens.
