Facebook tests resume feature
- TechCrunch reports that Facebook is testing a resume-creating feature called "work histories."
- "Work histories" won't post to users' profiles, like most resume platforms, according to TechCrunch. Also, users will be able to share their resumes privately through Facebook.
- The service could allow the social media giant to compete with other sites like Monster and LinkedIn.
Employers have seen several big players enter the workforce tech field in recent years. Before "work histories," Facebook launched Workplace, an answer to Slack that also allows page administrators to post job openings and accept applications within the platform.
Google launched its job posting site Google for Jobs this summer, quickly followed by Hire, which is aimed at helping recruiters identify talent, build strong relationships with candidates and oversee the interview process. And CareerBuilder expanded its reach in September with Talent Discovery.
As more giant tech companies enter the lucrative territory of talent searching, recruiters may be able to streamline their work, rather than struggling to juggle multiple platforms.
