Facebook has expanded the ability to apply to jobs directly on its platform to more than 40 countries.
Rolled out in the US and Canada in 2017, Facebook’s job application feature is different from Microsoft-owned LinkedIn as it is focused to draw in candidates for small-and medium-size businesses.
Facebook, however, did not elaborate on which 40 countries were part of this expansion.
“Local businesses strengthen our communities and create more than 60 percednt of new jobs. We want to help people to find those jobs and help local business hire the right people,” Alex Himel, Vice President of Local at Facebook said in a blog post.
In an online poll of 5,000 adults conducted by tech and media company Morning Consultant, one in four people in the US said they searched for or found a job using facebook.
