Other ways to post a job on Facebook

There are two other ways to post a job on Facebook if you don’t want to or can’t post the job on a Facebook page:

  • Post the job on your Facebook profile
  • post the job on the Facebook marketplace

Post the job on your Facebook profile

If you post the job on your Facebook profile, the job post will only appear on your personal Facebook profile, so the reach will be probably lower.

You also can’t specify salary, job description, and all the other features of the Facebook job post we have shown you above.

You also can’t boost a Facebook post on your personal Facebook profile, but you can encourage your Facebook friends to share the post.

Post the job on the Facebook marketplace

The second and better option is to post the job on Facebook marketplace. It is almost as good as posting on your Facebook page, so if you don’t have a Facebook page, then this is definitely the better option to find employees, freelancers on Facebook.
