Job resources on Twitter

Joanna LordHere it is: the most comprehensive list of where to find jobs on Twitter. I’ve been conceptualizing this post for a while. I was finally motivated this morning after reading Using Twitter for Job Search, a post by Louise Fletcher, a fellow career blogger. Fletcher outlines the different ways a twitter-lover can use their tweets to search out jobs and land them. She does a great job of stressing the importance of connecting with the right people and sharing quality information. After reading it I was left wondering. “What job boards are taking advantage of this partnership opportunity?

I’ve long wanted to put together a comprehensive list of job boards on Twitter. I did some research on which big brand job boards are embracing the Twitter platform as a way to reach potential users. Although there are a number of them squatting on their brand names, not many of the bigger boards are very active. Nice work folks.

There are a few exceptions, however (@indeed for example) and us of course (@theonlinebeat). I surprisingly came across a number of boutique boards spanning both geographical territories and niche industries. Many of them are working incollaboration with websites, but some are simply a community of users posting jobs for in a specific niche. As the Twitter community continues to grow, I can’t help but be aware of how it could drastically change the future of online job searching. It will be an exciting ride that is for sure.
