Twitter is reportedly working on a new feature called “Twitter Hiring” that will allow verified organizations to post job listings directly on their profiles, in an effort to compete with LinkedIn and other job search platforms. Although there has been no official announcement from Twitter, certain verified organizations have already been able to add job listings under their Twitter bios, which redirect interested applicants to the company’s website for further details and applications.
How Does this Feature Work?
The feature will enable verified organizations to showcase up to five job positions on their profiles, providing an opportunity to attract talent to their open positions. Twitter will also offer the option for organizations to import all their open jobs by connecting to a supported Applicant Tracking System (ATS) or XML feed, streamlining the process of listing job opportunities on the platform. This move appears to align with Elon Musk’s earlier hint that Twitter might add functionalities and features for jobs, and the recent acquisition of job-matching tech startup, Laskie, by Twitter may have influenced the development and release of the “Twitter Hiring” feature.
Will Verified Organizations Have to Pay additional Charges to Access this Feature?
Unlike some other platforms, verified organizations will not incur additional charges for accessing the job posting feature. Media company Workweek has reportedly already gained access to this feature, which comes within Twitter’s Verified for Organizations package, priced at $1,000 per month. The new functionality is expected to help companies reach a broader range of candidates across Twitter’s vast user base.
