The Facebook Tab allows you to add a “JOBS” tab to your company’s page on Facebook.

Facebook is a marketing channel for companies where they actively communicate about their brand. Unfortunately, this channel is underutilized to target prospective candidates.

This integration allows potential candidates to apply on your Facebook page.

Step 1:

Click on "+"  next to "Sources" to  start creating a new a source.

Step 2:

Select the Facebook Tab as a Source type then choose a member of the team as a Point of contact.

Step 3:

Type the Welcome message that will appear on the Facebook Tab. A message that prompts visitors to drop their resumes will be more successful in capturing more applications.

Click on the drop zone to choose a background image for your Facebook Tab page. An image of a team of your colleagues is more likely to convert visitors into applications.

Step 5:
