In March, I briefly mentioned TweetMyJobs in a post about more success stories with Twitter as a Job Board. After reviewing the site earlier this week, as part of a Social Recruiting Tool series, I am now doing a more detailed article about TweetMyJobs.
Basically, TweetMyJOBS has become the largest Twitter job board in the world. It currently has over 8,959 vertical job channels segmented by geography, job type, and industry, and hence it is able to connect employers and recruiters with targeted job candidates instantly any time a new job is posted to the service.
The service lets job seekers receive instant notifications on their phone when new jobs are posted online via Twitter. It aggregates the Twitter-based job postings from companies, all of which are searchable via their website.
In that earlier post, a case study was mentioned: InterContinental Hotels Group filled positions—from a Finance Manager to a Bar Server—around the world via Twitter.
In January 2010, the company posted more than 1,000 open positions via TweetMyJOBS and received more than 18,000 highly-targeted views from job seekers looking in specific job categories and geographies for both corporate and hotel positions.
This is coming from the back of a partnership deal between TweetMyJobs and TMP worldwide. A press release by TMP in December 2009, states:
TMP Worldwide Advertising & Communications, LLC, the world’s leading authority on developing and deploying digital solutions for talent acquisition and employee engagement, announced today that it has partnered with TweetMyJobs, the largest and most effective Twitter job board. The agreement will allow TMP to provide its clients with a customizable solution to leverage social media for recruiting purposes.
Also in March, according to RWW, Sears Holdings posted thousands of jobs on Twitter via TweetMyJobs. Excerpts of the post is shown below:
Sears Holdings Corp. just announced they posted thousands of jobs on Twitter via the Twitter-based job board service, TweetMyJOBS.com.
Sears Holdings posted over 500,000 job openings last year via traditional recruiting channels like job search sites and newspapers. Now those same jobs will be on Twitter.
Says Lance Brolin, Director, Talent & Human Capital Services Operations for Sears Holdings, of the decision to engage on Twitter, “we’re quickly realizing that we needed to broaden our employment marketing to include social media.”
According to Gary Zukowski, president and founder of TweetMyJOBS, this partnership makes Sears one of the largest brands to embrace mobile recruiting. Although Twitter is the platform used for the service, the primary function of TweetMyJOBS is to connect job seekers with jobs via text messages sent to their cell phones.
TweetMyJobs, which mostly serves the US jobs market, now has an impressive client lists for job distribution etc on twitter and a growing number of job seekers are making good use of this service.
