February 7, 2012 – Career site Job.com and TweetMyJOBS, a social recruiting platform, have announced the integration of the Who? button, a new social tool empowering job seekers with the ability to tap into their social network, on Job.com. TweetMyJobs developed this Facebook application to accelerate referral-based job searching and social recruiting. The “Who?” button utilizes a user's Facebook friends to alert a job seeker when they have a connection at a hiring company. “We're excited to be adding a social networking element to our job search to help job seekers realize the potential in the social and professional relationships they've already built,” said Brian Alden, president and CEO of Job.com. “The Who? button is a great way to increase a job seeker's leverage in a competitive job market by allowing them to instantly tap into the resources available through their social connections.” When a job seeker views a positing on Job.com, they will now see a red “Who?” button graphic above the description, which will allow them to install the Facebook application. The Who? button lets the job seeker instantly see if they have any first or second degree Facebook connections at the hiring company and then to directly request a referral through Facebook. Job.com, headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, is an online full service career site offering thousands of targeted jobs across its network of over 150 industry and regionally focused career sites.
