What is the Facebook Jobs Integration?

CareerPlug’s Facebook Jobs Integration allows your CareerPlug jobs to be automatically listed as open positions on Facebook, as long as your jobs are aligned with Facebook Jobs’ Integrity policy.

Make sure you include your Facebook business page URL on this page in CareerPlug. After you do so, the manager of your Business Facebook page will get an email from Facebook asking to connect ‘CareerPlug ATS’ with your business’s Facebook page. You’ll also get a Facebook notification about letting CareerPlug connect. After you connect your accounts, your CareerPlug jobs will be listed on your Facebook page.

The applications of those who apply via Facebook will appear on your Applicants page in CareerPlug, just like any other applicant.

Facebook has over 2 billion monthly active users, and this integration will allow you to reach job seekers where they are.

What do I need to do?

1. An administrator on your account should check your Facebook Business URL in CareerPlug and ensure it is up-to-date. To start, navigate to Account > Manage Careers Page. Locate the 'Facebook Page' field and paste your Facebook business page URL here.

Facebook business page URL

Your Facebook Business Page URL is the link that people see when they navigate to your Business Page on Facebook. Here is an example:

2. If you have jobs currently posted, the manager of your Business Facebook page will get an email from Facebook asking to connect your Facebook business page with CareerPlug. Click Connect Now in the email. (You only need to do this once.)

You'll get a notification letting you know when your job(s) will be posted to your Facebook page.

After your jobs are live on Facebook

After your jobs are live and attracting interested job seekers, people can apply to your jobs directly on Facebook. Those applications will be sent back to CareerPlug and will appear on your Applicants page just like applicants from Indeed, ZipRecruiter, and other job boards.

When an applicant applies on Facebook, they can use their job history and other information that’s available on their Facebook profile (like last job title and company) to fill in the job application. This makes it quicker for them to apply.

The visibility of Facebook jobs

When your job is posted on Facebook, it can appear in multiple places, including:
  • Jobs News Feed
  • Notifications
  • Groups
  • Facebook Marketplace
  • News Feed
  • Your business Facebook Page (if you have connected it with CareerPlug ATS following the steps above)
This makes it easier for you to reach and hire applicants. You can preview what Facebook job listings look like by using the search bar on Facebook (ex. searching for "Sales Jobs in Austin").
