Facebook to Launch Jobs Board: WSJ

Soon users may be able to apply within Facebook for job openings.

Facebook will team with existing job-posting companies to launch a jobs board later this year, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Citing anonymous sources, WSJ reports that BranchOut, Jobvite and Work4Labs will be at least three of the companies that will pair with the platform.

With the rise of LinkedIn -- and its aggressive moves into social-networking functionality -- having Facebook enter the fray is an obvious play for them.

Whether or not the job posts will display in the news feed is unclear.

Many bigger companies have career recruitment presences on Facebook already, but a centralized engine behind job postings and searches would feed the engagement metrics.

The Journal estimates the job-posting market is worth about $4.3 billion.
