  1. Hi Asianjournal,

    I see an important correction that is needed with the current article, where it states “Facebook will train 50 candidates to become Facebook Digital Marketers, paid for by JobsNOW!.” – This blurb is not quite accurate, the JobsNOW! program is simply placing job seekers with employers who qualify. The wage subsidy is then provided. The training is done by Facebook. The wage subsidy is paid to the employers for their hired staff.

    If you need more information, please reach out to me.
