It looks like Yahoo has launched a HotJobs Facebook Application. The App comes only days after the buzz of Yahoo Kickstart, which is a concept social job network targeted towards students. Kickstart is apparently an experiment that may not even be unveiled for public use at all, depending on the researching outcome. The new HotJobs App allows users to see where their friends work, add places they would like to work, vote for which of their friends would be be most likely to move to Tibet to become a monk, and of course search for a job. The App also has a tagging feature that allows you to label your friends with career-related tags.
I don’t know if this new Facebook App is a sign that Kickstart won’t launch or if it’s just part of the experimentation for Kickstart (or maybe it’s not even related to Kickstart), but it’s interesting that they would launch a HotJobs App so soon after Kickstart emerged.
