The Obama administration announced Thursday it would use social networking to put Americans back to work. The “Social Jobs Partnership” is a newly launched Facebook page to help job seekers connect with employers.
“We’re here to announce our all-star social media team committed to putting America back to work,” Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said at the department’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
“Landing on this page can help Americans land a good job,” Solis said. “Even at a time with 9 percent unemployment, we know there are millions of unfilled job openings right now that exist in this country.”
