Search Executive Jobs With Twitter Lists

by Meg Guiseppi on June 11, 2010

Are you still on the fence about the value of Twitter and hesitate diving in?

Maybe this will change your mind. Thousands of top companies post job openings in real time and recruit executive candidates through Twitter.

You can find these employers by joining Twitter and searching for them, and through Twitter lists.

If you’re not familiar with Twitter lists, they offer users the ability to organize other users into groups, forming curated Twitter streams of the lastest tweets from specified users. Any Twitter user can then follow the lists of their choice to easily access those Twitter users’ streams.

Job-Hunt.org (@JobHuntOrg on Twitter)  has done some of the leg work by compiling their list of hundreds of top employers who are using Twitter to directly recruit employees.

A quick recent visit to the growing list included job postings at every professional level for companies such as:

  • FedEx
  • Motorola
  • Bing
  • GE
  • Allstate
  • ING
  • Sears
  • AOL
  • Raytheon
  • L’Oreal
  • Dolby
  • Vanguard

You can also search for individual Twitter users’ lists of employers (and other lists) through directories such as Listorious.

For more information on finding lists to follow and how it all works, see Josh Catone’s (@catone on Twitter) Mashable post, HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists.
