Facebook To Help Unemployed Americans Find Jobs

October 21st, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Facebook has recently announced that it is coming up with an initiative to help unemployed Americans find jobs fast. Called the Facebook Social Jobs Partnership, the wildly popular social network is teaming up with the US Department of Labor to put this initiative to work. Also on board are a handful of employment service non-profits to help out put the program in to gear which includes the Direct Employers Association (DE), the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA).

The main objective of this initiative is to help job seekers as well as employers achieve their employment related needs via Facebook’s vast social network. After all, most of the people with nothing to do usually head on to Facebook to kill time. Why, even those people with a lot to do also tend to do that as well.

But kidding side, Facebook aims to help out the jobless find jobs in a more convenient way and through a more common and popular venue. This can actually be a good way to help bring together the job seekers and those job vacancies together in one place.

This initiative may be starting on the right foot. Since a Facebook page has been set up for it, the new initiative has so far garnered more than 5,000 interested parties. It may either be that there really is quite a lot of people who may be out of jobs right now or just that many people getting quite curious about the initiative. But it is just starting out and anything that can help out people with employment problems is always a good thing. And it will also be good to the American economy. It seems that Facebook is now trying its best to make a big positive impact on the American society, by giving people another good reason to spend some productive time on their social network.
