Facebook’s New Job App Challenges LinkedIn

LinkedInTwitterFacebookGoogle+Share

LinkedIn has neglected two big opportunities Facebook is now capitalizing on: helping lower-skilled workers and people who aren’t actively looking for a job. Today Facebook is rolling out a slew of new Jobs features we spotted it testing last year. They could hurt LinkedIn’s growth prospects and divert recruiting ad dollars. Business Pages will now be able to post job openings to the News Feed through the status update composer, and host them on a Jobs tab on their Page. When users see these, they can hit an “Apply Now” button to instantly send an application through Facebook Messenger.

LinkedInTwitterFacebookGoogle+Share

It sounded, on the surface, like a can’t miss premise. eHarmony, one of the world’s largest online dating sites, would leverage its extensive data set, proprietary algorithm and established track record of finding fit to match candidates with jobs.

The product, which would ultimately go-to-market under the moniker “Elevated Careers” (likely due to the dearth of decent recruiting related URLs), was first announced all the way back in 2013.

3 Startups Redefine How To Recruit Talent In New York City

LinkedInTwitterFacebookGoogle+Share

Pymetrics, launched by Dr. Frida Polli, is the first career assessment and recruiting platform to use objective scientific assessments of a person’s cognitive and emotional strengths to match job seekers with hiring companies. The goal, Polli explained, was to improve the process for both job seekers and companies by counteracting stereotyping on both sides with a flair of “matching technology” and “game technology.” The company builds a cognitive and emotional trait profile of top company performers to source and screen potential talent.

Founded by Natan Fisher, SingleSprout — which specializes in engineering, data and design — has excelled, successfully recruiting engineers for 80-plus companies across N.Y.C., with some clients doing double-digit hires through the SingleSprout service. The catch, though, is that SingleSprout has a knack for collaborating with do-gooders.

Founded in 2014, Workey raised $1.6 million in seed funding led by Israel’s leading venture capital firm, Magma Venture Capital. The company’s algorithm analyzes people’s career histories and compares their resumes to millions of others in order to predict, and suggest, the most relevant opportunities.
