Twitter wants to take on LinkedIn and is working on a job posting feature that will allow verified organizations to post job listings on their profiles.
The company has created an account ‘@TwitterHiring’ on the micro-blogging platform, but has not tweeted anything so far. App researcher Nima Ovji posted a screenshot on Thursday detailing the feature and saying, “#Twitter will let verified organizations import all their jobs to Twitter by connecting a supported ATS or XML feed!”
“Connect a supported applicant tracking system or XML feed to add your jobs to Twitter in minutes.”
According to the screenshot, the company describes the feature as “Twitter Hiring,” a “free” feature for “verified organizations to post jobs on your company profile and attract top talent to your open positions.” Is.
In addition, verified organizations will be able to add up to five job positions to their profiles. Twitter owner Elon Musk hinted at the feature in May this year. When a user suggested the dating app ‘Twinder’, Musk replied, “Interesting idea, maybe even jobs.”
Media company Workweek has already got access to the new job posting feature, and its CEO Adam Ryan claims the feature is included in the $82,300 per month Verified Organization plan.
Although users are already able to post job positions on the micro-blogging platform through tweets, the new feature could help companies reach out to potential candidates more easily.
TechCrunch reported that Twitter’s first acquisition since Musk’s takeover was job-matching tech startup LaSky in May. Therefore, it is possible that the acquisition may have helped facilitate and release the micro-blogging platform.
