"The venture will help us
target our ads to potential employees who will be interested in the
jobs and information we have to offer,” said Taylor Foss, vice-president of Human Resources
at LifeBridge Health.
LifeBridge Health is the first Baltimore-based health care
system to tap into this market. LifeBridge Health is also joining forces with
CareerBuilder on Facebook in its efforts to recruit the best and brightest
health care employees who may be more in tune with the Internet than with
traditional advertising methods.
"It is a virtual job fair with tremendous potential,
especially for those who may not be actively job searching,” Foss said. Users
can easily be directed to the LifeBridge Health employment site, www.lifejobs.org
Facebook began in 2004
at Harvard University but soon spread to colleges around the nation, and to
workplaces and homes. The value of Facebook is being able to easily share
information with selected people online, including photos and videos.

organization that includes Sinai
