The Ways That You Can Use Hashtags to Help Your Job Search

Survey a  Company

 Using the hashtag as an intelligence tool will help you know more about the company that you are going to apply for a job. You can use the hashtag to get inside information. (Do not forget that they can do the same with you) It is common that the company has a hashtag that is used by the employees to tell their stories about the workplace. Check about the existence of a hashtag for employees. Many workplaces have a hashtag for the employees to share experiences. For example, #Comeovolanteer allows employees to share photos and stories on their volunteering experiences. Reading insider can tell you that this company has an opening job. Allway check if they have a hashtag that can let you learn about the company.


Searching Available Jobs

It is common these days to find posts looking for employees in social media.  Some times they add hashtags to the posts. You can search for #jobsearch or #vacants or any combination that have to do with someone looking for employees. The hashtags can be more focused relating to the place you are living or looking for a job for relocation.

LinkedIn has now searchable hashtags. It will be a good idea to look for job postings on this social media that is more of business and career than general social media.

Promote Your Employment Search

You can help the recruiting managers to find you by creating the hashtags that will promote your job search on social media. One way to use the hashtags is to add them to your post that has your resume and your interest in finding a job. It can be #resume, #jobsearch #lookingforajob.

Looking for a job on Twitter

Professional Events: A good event for using hashtags are professional conferences when you participate in such an event you will see that they use their hashtag, copy it and use it on your post from this event, photos, and written posts. Keep your self informed and participate as much as you can in this kind of events.

Recommendations for Using Hashtags for Job-hunting

Use common hashtags. You do not need to create new hashtags, here are known hashtag that you better use than waiting that the people will know them and start using them. You have to check which hashtags are popular, who are the influential people in your industry that are using the hashtags that you want to use. Ask your friend what hashtags they use and which are the most important to use.  Remember that Twitter is using the hashtag as usernames. Make sure about who uses the hashtag. You need those that are used by people that can add to your network and not some people that are having no influence or just not in the right position.


For example, the hashtag #hunt will link your post with hunters groups rather than employment posts! Do a quick search before you use a hashtag.

Use hashtags only for professional content. Hashtags should be kept professional, use them only on your professional content and job search posting. Your posts on your pets or hobby are not a place for a hashtag.

Use hashtags only when it is needed.  Do not overuse hashtags, add your selected hashtags to your post that have a content that is related to your professional life.  Use two or three hashtags that are useful for job searching. Remember that traditional job search methods still work.
