Meeting the evolving needs of employers, recruiters, and the emerging workforce, Monster.com, the worldwide leader in connecting job seekers to opportunities, has released BeKnown, a professional networking app for Facebook where users can create professional networks in a Monster-type environment, without ever leaving Facebook. The app allows for the sharing of company and individual professional profiles with your social network and providing recommendations on schools, employers and individuals.
A user can share specific jobs through their BeKnown networks and invite contacts from other social networks, meanwhile separating social activity from work-related activity. Using Monster’s job search tools and Monster profiles directly (via the app) allows users to determine whether BeKnown contacts are connected with companies or job opportunities. Companies and recruiters using BeKnown have access to Facebook’s 700 million users and can create visible recruitment campaigns, extend their job-posting reach and establish recruiter and employee networks.
Monster Worldwide’s Global Chief Information Officer and Head of Product, Darko Dejanovic, comments, “BeKnown answers the need and challenge in the marketplace for people to build their professional networks on Facebook, while keeping personal and work-related contacts and content completely separate. BeKnown now gives people and companies the ability to utilize that vast network for professional gain by tapping into the power of Monster and Facebook.”
