Who is trying to get your company’s attention in the #TwitterJobChallenge? #SocialRecruiting

Twitterjobchallenge

On 5th April, the Guardian set their graduate blogger, Sarah Barnard a challenge. She has to gain the attention of one of her top 5 employers using Twitter and try to get them to give her a job.

#twitterjobchallenge was born.

The Challenge was then extended to anyone that felt like taking part.

The Guardian is hoping that lots of people will try to get the attention of the companies they’d most like to work for using Twitter and then feedback the results.

This is a great opportunity for brands to show that they are listening to the Twittersphere.

If you are not already monitoring mentions of your brand on Twitter, go along to Twitter Search and search for your brand name. If there are a lot of results, look to see if anyone is mentioning your company with the #twitterjobchallenge tag.

Good luck to all those people looking for a job on Twitter 🙂
