Recently I’ve been fascinated by job seekers using twitter to find jobs. I spoke to one of them on my podcast about how she used it to get a job in Boston. So that got me thinking about better ways to leverage twitter and the job hunt. So my developer and I spent 6 months crafting.tweaking/designing some thing new.
Allow me to introduce Jobcritters!
For job seekers it allows them to connect with more job publishers such as job boards, employers, staffing firms and recruiters. And it lets them create a keyword rich “twesume” that allows recruiters to find them easier. It is totally free.
Job boards should join in order to be added to a public directory and for the ability to post sponsored job tweets.
It’s time we organized job related twitter accounts and this site is the first step towards that goal. So head over to Jobcritters.com and add your site for free then add keywords to your profile. When done your twesume should look like the example below. You are allowed up to 10 keywords to describe your site niche plus embed up to 3 links. These keywords will be used for our job publisher directory which will launch in a few months.
And to be sure your jobs feed is searchable by our job seekers just be sure to include the words job OR hiring when you push out your jobs to twitter. (see example below image)
This tweet has job title, location and #job hashtag. It will display on Jobcritters job search results easily.
So I hope you join and help organize the job-twitt-osphere!
