eQuest Customers Can Now Post And Twitter Their Jobs

One of the largest job posting distribution services in the world is now pushing jobs out to Twitter followers.

eQuest has partnered with TweetMyJOBS to use the service to send targeted job postings directly to Twitter followers. eQuest posts something like 200 million jobs a year to more than 20,000 job boards. Now, it will send job notices directly to jobseekers who have opted in to the TweetMyJOBS service.

“eQuest is very impressed with the feature enhancements TweetMyJOBS has provided Twitter users,” said Larry Butti, Job Board Communications Manager at eQuest.

Gary Zukowski, president and founder of TweetMyJOBS, says “Working with eQuest will enable thousands of new job opportunities to be delivered instantly to job seekers, and will allow corporations to utilize Social Media as a cost-effective and efficient recruitment channel.”

Zukowski launched the site early this year and set up thousands (4,000 at last count) of channels that jobseekers can pick from to get Tweeted when a job comes along fitting their interest and their chosen geography.
