We all agree that Twitter is very useful for finding job leads, but is there a creative way of looking for jobs on Twitter? Well, there is a way and it’s called TwitJobSearch. TwitJobSearch overlays job tweets with their location. It is actually quite clever in what it does.
Here is a map of jobs on twitter overlayed on the map of the UK. You can zoom in further and get even more local jobs.
This is cool isn’t it?
Oh, and for those of you who like the good old-fashioned way of finding jobs, then the same platform allows you to look for jobs on Twitter using the browser functionality, which gives you the option of selecting the industry and the field you are interested in.
For example, I wanted to see jobs on twitter for the Engineering industry in the Mechanical Engineering field. This is what the browser came up with.
I love this platform.
What’s also good is that you can use their different widgets or the map itself and embed it on your website. We tried using it and embedding it on WordPress but for some reason it did not work. It might be a clash of languages. But we are sure it works in HTML.
