Twitter Recruiting Tips #5

Most recruiters don’t take full advantage of what Twitter can do for them. This blog series will give you basic insight into leveraging twitter in your recruiting department.



When you tweet, particularly when you tweet jobs, include #hashtags. Hashtags are “clickable keywords” within the Twitter ecosystem. They make your content more discoverable and give it context. When you post a job its best to hashtag that job with the #jobs hashtag. You might also hashtag the #city and #industry.

Now a job seeker can use the #jobs hashtag to filter out just job listings without tweets that also have the word jobs in them. You can also put hashtags in your user bio.

Below is a search marketing #jobs in Hartford, CT. All the hashtags in green are clickable.


BONUS: Hashtagify and Tagboard are hashtag only search engines for twitter.
