Uncover Your City’s Underground Twitter Job Board
Every major metropolitan city has a human resource industry wherein recruiters build a list of possible candidates to place into possible jobs. Twitter is often where these recruiters are turning to post jobs and recruit talent.
Follow these steps to find your local recruiters so you can monitor real-time job postings:
Go to any Twitter user directory and type the following into the search box: recruiter, [your city] or executive search, [your city].
2.Follow the firms who are active on Twitter.
Check their past few tweets to see whether or not they post regularly.
Add your finds to a list called Recruiters so you can follow their posts easily.
If you want to save yourself the hassle of trying to follow many recruiters all at once, add @microjobs to your list of people to follow. Recruiters from around the United States use this aggregation service. When a recruiter tweets a post to @microjobs, @microjobs automatically retweets the post to the thousands of people in the service’s growing network.
Although following @microjobs can be a time-saver, be aware that the job postings you see will be for opportunities throughout the country, not just in your local community.
Many cities have people who are so passionate about Twitter’s job-networking ability that they maintain a Twitter account that aggregates job postings in your area. These Twitter accounts can be great resources for uncovering the hidden job market. To find them, follow these steps:
Visit your preferred Twitter user directory and type [your city] jobs into the search box.
Find the Twitter accounts that are streams of job listings.
Often, these streams are broken down by industry, such as healthcare jobs or internships.
Follow these streams and add them to a list called Local Jobs.
The final way to uncover the hidden job market on Twitter is to perform persistent searches for words and hashtags that contain the words jobs, careers, and so forth. As jobs are posted in your area, you’ll be able to see them and apply for them in real-time. Just follow these steps:
Create a new column for searching a keyword in your Twitter management software.
HootSuite and TweetDeck are two common types of Twitter management software.
Type in a job-related hashtag, such as #jobs, #careers, or #employment.
Further refine your search by using variations of your location.
