KONOKER Jobs, a job advertisement and job search tool built on
Facebook Platform, was launched by 1902 Software Development
Corporation on March 19, 2009.
Using the KONOKER Jobs application, Facebook users can advertise regular and
freelance jobs for free, apply for postings and share them with friends, thus
unleashing the power of the Facebook social graph.
The application is very easy to use, both for advertisers and jobseekers alike. Job
advertisers can post an unlimited number of job ads in KONOKER Jobs without spending
a single penny. On the jobseeker’s part, all that has to be done to apply for a job
is to click a button.
One practical highlight of KONOKER Jobs is its location-specific job searching
feature, which makes it very easy for jobseekers to find job openings in their
locality or geographic region.
With KONOKER Jobs, companies and jobseekers alike can advertise themselves, their
specialization, their services, or specify the job they are looking for. That way,
they can easily be identified by prospective employers, employees, or clients.
With one click, KONOKER Jobs makes it possible for a person to send job ads and
resumes to his or her friends, either on Facebook or via email.
“We’ve been wondering why there wasn’t an application on Facebook Platform that was
both location-sensitive and detailed and not part of an established jobsite. So, we
built one that is sort of a Facebook-only jobsite,” says Peter Skouhus, president of
1902 Software Development Corporation. “As an IT company, we’ve had our share of
difficulty in finding the right people. Using KONOKER Jobs, we want to explore the
potential of Facebook to find the right talent,” Skouhus adds.
