An interesting article from Forbes.com highlights a successful job hunt using the social media site of Twitter.
TweetMyJOBS.com is the idea of Gary Zukowski, an entrepreneur located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Users can search jobs for free by signing up for various job channels in for cities across America. Companies, in turn, can post jobs on the site as well. When a job becomes available on a job channel for which a person has subscribed, the person instantly receives a text message on his or her cell phone notifying them of the opportunity.
“Job seekers and recruiters are all rushing to use social media such as a way to find and post jobs,” says Zukowski. “However, since this process is so new, people want to know if this approach truly works. Because of the functionality we offer we are confident that we have built a service that will produce results.”
