About Recruitment Marketing with Facebook & Instagram

Why should you advertise jobs on Meta?

Meta has more than 2.37 billion users, whereas more than half are daily active users. In order to successfully hire the right candidates, you should advertise where your audience spends most of their time online.

Why do recruitment ads on Meta work?

Not only does Meta allow you to communicate job positions on platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, two of the world’s most popular social media networks. In comparison to traditional job boards, Meta enables you to connect with passive job seekers by targeting suitable candidates.

How do you manage recruitment ads on Meta?

There are two ways to manage recruitment ads on Meta: 1. Through Meta’s native UI or through a 3rd-party tool like Jobtip’s tech solution that gets customized to fit your ATS and recruitment needs and automatically publishes put-together and attractive recruitment ads to Instagram and Facebook.
