Could you tweet your job application?


Digital marketing executives keen to work for a Brighton-based publisher are being asked to tweet as to why they should be considered for the post.
As a result, applicants for the job at the Friday Media Group, which owns about 70 classified ad and recruitment websites as well as various print titles, will have a maximum of only 140 characters to make their case.
Carlie Dragone, the firm’s social media executive, explained the rationale: "For this type of role, we’re looking for people who are creative and digitally savvy and wanted to test their abilities as a way of recruiting. We believe this is a new and innovative way to recruit and, if successful, something we could use for every job vacancy we recruit for."
Candidates are being asked to post their application at tweet@marketing-job and the closing date is 4 May. The successful applicant will be responsible for the marketing and development of one of its classified websites and will manage, co-ordinate and implement activities aimed at boosting revenues, traffic and ad placement online.
They will work alongside the classifieds marketing manager and marketing director and the salary is negotiable based on experience.
In news elsewhere, Virgin Trains announced that it had been accredited as a Gold Investors in People employer.

  1. great post

    This is something that is becoming quite a hot topic. Some people believe that social media will eventually take over the recruitment industry. However, despite more and more people finding work through social media there is still plenty of work to be done.
