The recruiter can also add screening questions, that enable him to qualify the applications.
Candidates can directly apply to job opportunities in Facebook.
They can find jobs on the “Jobs” tab of their newsfeed, and they can search for opportunities by job title and location.
When clicking on the “Apply now” button, a pre-filled form appears, containing information given by the candidate on their profile:
