It appears Facebook has decided which company's features it is going to replicate next on its juggernaut social media website. The company is testing a feature on its website that allows one to build and maintain their CV. The update could indicate a larger interest in the job searching and recruiting space, putting Facebook in direct competition with LinkedIn.
The feature, first reported by The Next Web's Matt Navarra, allows users to list their professional experience and education on Facebook. Additionally, users can also add their contact details, an image and other relevant information. From the looks of it, Facebook seems to have made it very simple for users to edit and add entries to their CV. Facebook has long allowed users to share their education and professional experience on the website, but this is the first time the company is taking such a deep-dived approach at the matter and visibly calling the option as a resume.
