The recruitment field, like most fields have made certain changes to keep up with the changing times. Gone are the days when recruiting relied on the ‘walk in’ principle that was traditionally followed? Nowadays, the entire process that was time consuming is rather simple and fast too.
If you’re wondering what is this all about then this is about social media replacing the traditional methods of recruiting such as newspaper ads and job portals. With everything being digitalised, it is only natural that the recruiting process be based on social media.
With so many social networking sites available, it is important for users or potential candidates to think twice before posting and when filling out their profile. For those of you looking to get hired, the entire process of creating a profile can be overwhelming. In view of this, here are “Tips to Create Perfect Posts on Twitter.”
Make sure that you add a photograph and ensure that you fill up all the information that is asked. With a picture you are bound to be recognised as it makes your profile engaging. If you have a video then you can even add that into your profile. This will increase your chances of getting noticed.
To receive the most activity to your posts, there are a few trivial, yet important aspects that most individuals tend to overlook. You need to pay attention to aspects that matter. Make sure that the message contains questions, facts and figures so that you give your followers something to Tweet about.
Twitter has the Call To Action (CTA) feature that you can use to your advantage. When creating a CTA message ensure that you are clear about what you want your readers to do. If used properly you stand to gain a lot with this simple feature.
Another feature that can improve your activity is with the help of mentions. You can use mentions to prompt influencers to engage with you and then respond back. Make sure you are considerate when writing a post to attract people whose opinion matters.
Pay attention to your punctuations as it says a lot. So make sure that you use up as many characters as you can from 140. And as far as possible it is preferable to avoid abbreviations and all caps when creating messages.
The retweet is an amazing feature to grab hold off for the purpose of boosting activity to your post. When retweeting posts be sure to retweet relevant content for your audiences or you will risk losing them. Remember to leave 20 characters, so that people can add to the content.
