This is another in a series of posts I’m doing that cover some of the enhancements in the new Facebook App Redesign:

In today’s post, I’m going  the cover our new “Applicant Routing” option.  In the past, we collected all job applications on Syndicruit so that you can retrieve them at any time from within the Admin Panel of the Job Recruitment Facebook App:

We also emailed these job applications to users who have subscribed to receive them. But we’ve heard from some customers that they would like to route users to their own website and collect job applications there. For those circumstances, we now offer you an “Applicant Routing” feature. It’s available when you create a new job or edit an existing job. You can now choose to route candidates to an external website by simply specifying any website address:

Please note that once you choose to direct candidates to an external website, we no longer collect job applications on your behalf, so you won’t be able to retrieve them from within the Facebook App.

As always, we welcome your feedback on this change. And if you’d like to participate in an ongoing usability test that we’re conducting, we’d really like to hear from you. Together, I hope we can continue to improve the recruitment experience on Facebook.

I’m pleased to announce that we recently completed a redesign of our Facebook Job Recruitment App. The goals of the redesign were:

  • Improve the user experience for both our customers and job seekers;

  • Make it easier for job seekers to find relevant and interesting jobs; and

  • Add important productivity tools for our customers.

You will immediately notice that both the public facing Jobs tab and the Admin Panel where you manage your jobs have been redesigned.

As you start using our redesigned app, I hope that you will find it faster and easier to use.  We know how busy our customers are, so one of the key design goals was to significantly reduce the time it takes to complete tasks. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be publishing several blog posts that talk about some of these enhancements. As always, we welcome your feedback on these changes. Also, we’ve got an ongoing initiative to conduct usability tests with our customers. If you can help by participating in this, we’d really like to hear from you. Together, I hope we can continue to improve the recruitment experience on Facebook.
