The presence of a coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) has forced many companies to have to lay off some of their employees because they are no longer able to operate amid this lockdown policy.
Not only in Nigeria, but it is also known that in the United States, the unemployment rate has now increased dramatically and makes people not know what else to do.
Facebook is also observing these developments and is now preparing a new feature to help the unemployed find new jobs in the midst of this coronavirus outbreak.
Based on information obtained from one social media analyst named Jane Manchun Wong, it is known that Facebook is preparing new features to help the unemployed.

The feature, named ‘Job Questions’ and ‘Employment Resource Banner COVID-19’ will soon be available on the Facebook application in the near future.
The Job Inquiry feature can later be used by companies to find the people they want to recruit and find more qualified applicants.
While the COVID-19 Employment Resources Banner feature is present for unemployed people who want to find new jobs through the Ministry of Manpower’s website in their respective regions.
