How To: Link Facebook page as Facebook employer page

Today i am going to tell you how to link your particular facebook page and display it as Facebook Employer page as seen below.

Many of us have a Facebook page that we want to display it for the company details on your Facebook info tab. Some of our pages are popular and some are not.

See, that’s what this tutorial is all about. Ok, so now that you know what you are going to learn, lets make it easy and simple.

    I need a little help on this. In trying to do the upgrade, it seems that I deleted from my facebook page the ability to ‘add jobs’ so all that appears in FB is an “employer” square. When I originally tried to enter the page ID for the employer section, it wouldn’t take. Any advise where to go to reinstall the FB application for the employer section and to start over? Please send suggestions to email above.

      Hi, Victoria. Please capture a screenshot of your facebook employer section and post a link here in the comments so that i can understand what exactly the problem is! I dont know how you deleted that function to add jobs. :(

      Regarding the problem about facebook page id. When in Google chrome browser, go to your company page and Just right click the profile picture of your facebook company page, then click “Copy link address”, open a new tab and paste the link in the address bar. You will get a url something like this : http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=pa.129117107155795 Just copy the digits after pa. (those digits are the facebook page id) and insert it in field box as given in the above tutorial. I hope i have made it easy for you! :)
