Update on Facebook - Jobs

Updated: May 2

Facebook continually goes through changes and adjustments, sometimes it ends up being hard to keep up with them. Here is what you need to know about the recent Facebook Jobs update:

  • Existing Facebook Groups with a "Jobs" group type will be changed to the "General" group type and the "Jobs" group type will no longer be available.

  • The ability to distribute free jobs via a partner integration with the Jobs on Facebook API will no longer be available.

  • Jobs on Facebook will no longer be available on the Facebook Lite app or Facebook mobile website (m.facebook.com/jobs) for both employers and jobseekers.

  • The Jobs on Facebook browser will no longer be available.

  • Jobs on Facebook is shutting down outside the United States and Canada.


What won't be changing with this update:


  • Employers in the United States and Canada can continue to use Jobs on Facebook tools to create job postings from their Page for free on the Facebook app and Facebook desktop website (www.facebook.com). They can also choose to boost their posts as ads.

  • Employers in the United States and Canada will continue to be able to manage their job applications and view details about all their job posts (boosted and non-boosted) through the Inbox and Manage Jobs sections of their Page.

  • Jobseekers in the United States and Canada can continue to apply for positions using Job on Facebook product features such as clicking Apply now on the job post, which will bring them to the detail view and then to an application form.
