New App Taps Your Twitter Network Automatically To Find Your Next Job
WorkFu constantly scans social media to find you relevant employment opportunities.
The infographic PSFK featured last month demonstrated the high likelihood of landing a job via social media sites. Nearly 8 million Americans claimed that Twitter got them their current job. A new web app called WorkFu has caught onto this and plans to tap into your Twitter connections to help you find jobs that are relevant to you. Each opportunity is given a relevance percentage rating and shows how well connected you are to the job poster. Applying for the job is as easy as clicking a button to register your interest, without the need to submit any resumes or cover letters.
Adam Martin, co-founder of WorkFu, explains that, “400 jobs are posted on Twitter every minute. We’ve built a web app that orders each job posted via WorkFu to Twitter by its relevance to you and lets you apply with one click.”
The site is due to launch in early February in beta-mode. In the future, WorkFu hopes to add more social networks to its platform.
