Elon Musk’s X (formerly Twitter) is to launch a new feature that will allow verified organizations to post job openings similar to LinkedIn. This will enable Twitter to connect talented users who are searching for jobs with the recruiters through their company profiles.
The soon expected introduction of this new feature can be seen as X’s attempt to compete with LinkedIn and other job searching platforms.
This can be looked at as a step closer to X becoming the ‘everything app’ that Musk has long dreamt of, reported the India Today.
X is a social networking service where as LinkedIn is a business and employment-focused social media platform. In April 2023, Twitter merged with X Holdings and ceased to be an independent company, becoming a part of X Corp by Elon Musk.
For a long time, Mr Musk has been talking about an ‘everything app’ called X that he could achieve in the future. The app must act as a one-stop solution for all the need of its users.
His idea is being compared with China’s WeChat application, an instant messaging, social media, and mobile payment app developed by Tencent. WeChat is considered as China’s ‘app for everything’, facilitating text messaging, hold-to-talk voice messaging, broadcast (one-to-many) messaging, video conferencing, video games, mobile payment, sharing of photographs and videos and location sharing.
The upcoming feature on X will let it work as LinkedIn or Naukari.com. The users will be able to search jobs posted in online.
About a month back, it was reported that organisations verified on the platform will be able to list jobs on the social media site. It was also reported that organisations will be able to list up to five open roles, reported the India Today.
The feature was first spotted by the app researcher Nima Owji. Ms Owji tweeted a screenshot of the proposed new feature on Thursday. According to the post shared by Ms Owji, Twitter is marketing the feature as a way for companies to attract top talent for open positions, reported the Mint.
