Poll: Would You Use The Facebook Job Board?
Facebook changes more frequently than we can keep track of sometimes. However, there is one addition that we can't ignore. The Facebook job board. After partnering with the Department of Labor and several other career websites, Facebook recently launched a new tool for job seekers: the Social Jobs application - a social job board. According to Facebook's announcement statement, the Social Jobs app was created to help job seekers "leverage social media to connect great jobs with great candidates." The Social Jobs application has more thatn 1.7 million jobs posted, according to Mashable.com. ...But will this new social tool beat out LinkedIn?

Would you try it or do you think it's a waste of time? Please take our poll, and tell us what you think in the comment section below! [poll id="94"] Photo Credit: Shutterstock
