CareerBuilder Launches Facebook Referral App

    September 30, 2010

CareerBuilder has launched a new application called “Work@” that allows employees to share their company’s job openings on their Facebook page.

Work@ pulls open jobs housed on a company’s website or in their Applicant Tracking System.  After an employee adds the Work@ application to their Facebook account, CareerBuilder’s job recommendation engine identifies matches in that employee’s network to the company’s available jobs.


Work@ also provides analytics, through which the company can track and measure trends over time to gauge their program’s success.

"Work@ helps companies grow their recruiting staff overnight by giving employees an easier, more convenient way to identify and refer friends," said Hope Gurion, Chief Development Officer at CareerBuilder.  

"It’s never been easier to unlock the potential of your employee referral program."
