This year saw the third Social Media in Recruitment Conference take place in London. The idea of this annual event is to help recruiters understand how they can use the new technologies available to them to maximum effect. One company that doesn’t require an introduction to this technology is Check4Jobs who have proved a particular flair for using social media platforms to ensure their candidates are kept informed and their clients jobs fill fast.
To make sure the right message gets to the right people Check4Jobs has recently added a few more specialist Twitter accounts that candidates can follow and therefore be informed instantly of new job opportunities. Check4Jobs’ jobsinnortheast is now helping job seekers in the North East of England be the first to know of any new jobs in their area. The cities London and Glasgow have also been given their very own job feeds, jobsinlondon and jobsinglasgow respectively, due to the high levels of activity in these areas.
So what will you receive if you subscribe to these tweets? You will receive short (up to 140 characters) notifications that can be picked up on your email or smart phone app of jobs in a particular location or sector. This doesn’t sound like a lot of information but the idea is to keep it short and sweet like a text message, with instructions on how to find out more if interested.
One of the most useful features of social media is its ability to share information quickly. Any tweet you receive can be retweeted to your followers thereby passing on the news to everyone who follows you. Once a message has been retweeted by several users it can have made it to the phone/computer of thousands of different individuals in a flash. That’s potential thousands of new ears (or eyes) for your message.
To see what specialist Twitter feeds Check4Jobs has to help you secure your new job, visit them at Check4Jobs Twitter to find out more. Alternatively, if Twitter isn’t to your taste, take a look at their Facebook and Google+ pages. Check4Jobs use their Google+ and Facebook pages to share new vacancies with their subscribers instantly. Capable of containing more detail than a tweet, a Facebook notification can contain images, videos, links or larger amounts of text. Friends can ‘like’ announcements and comments or even post them on their own walls.
