CareerBuilder Facebook App Matches Jobs to Candidates

October 1, 2010 ( - CareerBuilder has launched a new Facebook application that enables employees to share open jobs at their company with personal and professional contacts within their Facebook network.

The Work@ application grabs open jobs housed on a company’s Web site or in their Applicant Tracking System.  After an employee adds the Work@ application to his/her Facebook account, CareerBuilder’s job recommendation engine quickly identifies matches in that employee’s network to the company’s available jobs.   

According to a press release, Work@ also provides analytics through which the company can track and measure trends over time to gauge their program’s success.  Employers will discover who their best ambassadors are as well as which jobs and locations are being shared the most and receiving the most referrals.  

“Work@ helps companies grow their recruiting staff overnight by giving employees an easier, more convenient way to identify and refer friends,” said Hope Gurion, Chief Development Officer at CareerBuilder, in the announcement.
