Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world. Did you know that the country’s unemployment rate recently hit another all time low of 5.7%? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the U.S. economy added 257,000 jobs in January, 2015. For full-time workers there was a gain of 777,000 numbering more than 120 million for the first time since July 2008.
That may not mean anything in several communities around the country because people are still having difficulty landing jobs or obtaining a career in their field of expertise. There are several job-training sites located in and around cities and states, but did you also know that you could also locate employment opportunities right from your mobile device with www.tweetmyjobs.com
According to their site, “founded in 2009, TweetMyJobs helps job seekers find opportunities and receive targeted job recommendations by email, mobile or through Twitter and Facebook. TweetMyJobs’ technology, powered by its Social Network Interface (SNI) distributes company’s jobs across Facebook, LinkedIn and over 10,800 job channels on Twitter each one segmented by industry and location. Twitter job channels allow followers to be notified of new job openings in their desired industry or location through their Twitter stream.”
Tweetmyjobs is geographical specific and recently Wilmington City Councilman Darius Brown helped bring the online resource to Delaware. The site began with 3,500 job postings but it quickly doubled in the first 6 weeks. The listings include everything from entry level positions with retail stores like Starbucks and CVS to highly skilled positions with AstraZeneca, and DuPont.
Tweetmyjob is free service for both job seekers and employers and people looking for work can quickly set up a profile, enter the type of position they are looking for and how they want to be notified.
