How to Post a Job on Facebook without a Business Page

The Facebook job post is a section of the Facebook platform to post a job for free for potential employees to see your job advert and apply. The Facebook job posting is different from Facebook adverts. In a Facebook advert, you pay Facebook to help you advertise your products and services WHILE the Facebook job is free to use. There is no need to pay Facebook before your potential employees will see your job posting. However, to post a job on Facebook you need either a business page (fan page) or using your name (without a business page. Therefore, in this article, I will walk you through how to post a job on Facebook without a business page.

Free Facebook job post will be deleted automatically after 30 days if it’s not deleted within this period. This means that all free job posts on Facebook have 30 days validity after which the post will be deleted from your Facebook account.

I am going to share my experience with you on how I created a job advert on Facebook for free without a business page.

Note: It’s a must to have a Facebook account before you can post a job on the platform. So, if you have not created a Facebook, you must create a new account for this purpose.

Meanwhile, if your Facebook job posting failed to reach the target audience you can promote it to accomplish your goal of using the platform to advertise your job.
