Sears selects TweetMyJOBS to promote employment opportunities

BY CSA STAFF

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Sears Holdings has selected TweetMyJOBS, a company that uses social media and other digital platforms to inform members of new job opportunities.

“Last year, Sears Holdings posted more than 500 thousand job openings through several traditional job recruiting channels, but we’re quickly realizing that we needed to broaden our employment marketing to include social media,” said Lance Brolin, director of talent and human capital services operation for Sears Holdings. “We’ve chosen to work with TweetMyJOBS because their service is an innovative approach that can save us time, money and, most importantly, bring us the quality candidates we need.”

Job seekers can search TweetMyJOBS.com by type of work, location or specific company, or choose to receive instant notification via text message when a job fitting their criteria is posted. Online, through computers or smartphones, they can see detailed information about available positions, and view recruiter or employer web pages which further describe the job listings. After identifying a position that is ideal for them, job seekers can apply in a few short clicks. They can also proactively tweet their resume out on the “Twittersphere” for recruiters to find while searching for job candidates.
