Job seekers can create a "Twitter Resume," and employers can post job openings. The posting part is simple, elegant, and leaves one with a clean, ad-free, scannable piece of HR collateral. Users can even name their own price for a white-label version of the app that pulls design elements, including background and color schemes, from their Twitter profiles.
You don't get a vanity URL, but the URL is small enough that it won't need a shortener. And TwtJobs will pull in links to your Twitter profile, the site you linked to from your Twitter profile, and your LinkedIn page. You can email or text it, and of course it has sharing capabilities across the requisite 90 bajillion social sites. The website allows comments and tracks tweets about each post, and it even gives you a super-cute (if not customizable, at least for now - hope you like ochre) widget to embed anywhere you like.
As of press time (blogger joke), there was some confusion about exactly what to do with a post once it had been created. Founder Felipe Coimbra said that his team plans to add more job-searching, candidate-seeking capability "next week, once we have more resumes and jobs available." For now, however, "the idea revolves around you sharing your post with your network, and they retweet it."
In other words, keep coming back; it works if you work it.
Although the app's obvious purpose is to connect job seekers and employers, Coimbra noted it could also be used "to help people, and businesses in particular, to engage with their followers and community by asking them to participate in their hiring process."
Best of all, he feels this app could help shorten the timeline between needing and having the ideal job or candidate. "I believe this could get a lot of potential candidates within minutes, depending on the size of the tweeter's network and how relevant the followers are to the position offered."
