Can Facebook Solve Unemployment?

21 Oct

The Department of Labor believes it will help. Secretary Solis has announced a partnership with Facebook and several recruitment and worforce entities. Social Jobs Partnership will bring several job services to one portal (a Facebook page) making it easier for job-seekers to utilize them. Partners include the National Assn. of Colleges and Employers, the National Assn. of State Workforce Agencies and the DirectEmployers Assn. DOL also plans to expand to Twitter and LinkedIn.

Makes sense in theory- let’s see if it works. It’s about time the federal government dove into the social media pool (all of its employees certainly have…). I wonder what the timeline for updating the content will be…pretty sparse right now.

Landing on this page can help Americans land good jobs,” Solis said.
