There had bee rumors floating around for quite a while that Facebook was working on eventually introducing some kind of job board feature, and today Facebook announced its official launch. Called the Social Jobs Application, it's type of social job board involving collaborative efforts from the U.S. Department of Labor and several other government agencies.

"The new SJP app is a central location where recruiters can share open positions with the Facebook community sorted by industry, location and skills," Facebook said in its blog post announcement. "Today, the app launches with employment opportunities provided by BranchOut, DirectEmployers Association, Work4Labs, Jobvite and Monster.com. Together, these developers are offering applicants access to more than 1.7 million jobs currently hosted on Facebook."
