Last year, the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), DirectEmployers Association, the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) and Facebook joined forces to create the Social Jobs Partnership, an initiative that leverages social media to connect great jobs with great candidates.

Today, the Social Jobs Partnership (SJP) is launching our Facebook app, a new tool that will make it easier for people on Facebook to find and share employment opportunities.

The new SJP app is a central location where recruiters can share open positions with the Facebook community sorted by industry, location and skills. Today, the app launches with employment opportunities provided by BranchOut, DirectEmployers, Work4Labs, Jobvite and Monster.com. Together, these developers are offering applicants access to more than 1.7 million jobs currently hosted on Facebook.
