Zappos Creates A Social Network To Find Potential New Employees
Job candidates have to join and interact with current staff via the online retailer's Insiders network.
Social media and the internet has changed a little bit the way job hunters and companies reach out to each other. Aside from going on the usual job websites, many head hunters and companies are now using social networks like LinkedIn or even Twitter to post about job openings or check out the profiles of potential candidates.
Online retailer Zappos has taken it a step further by doing away with job postings and creating their own social network designed for potential job candidates.
People who are hoping to land a job in the company will have to become a Zappos Insider and sign up on the company’s careers site, where they can network with current Zappos employees and show their passion for the company.
