Facebook expands its Jobs listing tool

But LinkedIn is seen as an online venue for professionals to cultivate connections and opportunities whereas Facebook's job service appeared crafted for positions requiring less schooling or specialized training. The social network announced today that its job application feature will now be available in more than 40 countries.

Facebook says it won't show potential employers any information on a user's profile other than what has been made public by the user.
