Simply Hired® Launches Integration with Facebook® Connect (beta)

Today, Simply Hired announces the launch of the first job search experience to combine the world’s largest social graph with the largest jobs database. Through an extended beta integration with Facebook Connect, job seekers can now interact with their Facebook profile and friends on to receive customized job recommendations and land a job.

Simply Hired is committed to offering the best job search experience and providing tools to help job seekers find their dream jobs. We have been hearing from our users that they’re frequently using social sites such as Facebook to find a job. In fact, according to one of the latest polls, 65% of respondents already leverage their social graphs to job search. To better understand how we can successfully offer job seekers a search experience leveraging their friends, we are rolling out this Facebook Connect integration.

With this functionality, authenticated Facebook users will be able to discover jobs based on their current or previous work titles, location, interests and their friends’ companies on the home page of From the search results page, job seekers will be able to browse friends’ companies and search for job openings. We hope that this integration will help users leverage their Facebook friends to get an inside track on a job.

To enable this feature, users must opt-in. Information or activity about a user’s job search will not be shared on Facebook at any time.
