Useful Hashtags for Job Seekers

Never underestimate the power of social media when it comes to job hunting. See these useful hashtags for job seekers. A large chunk of a businesses’ advertisement budget is dedicated to their social marketing campaigns to try and build brand awareness and followers. As a job seeker, you need to do the same as these companies by marketing yourself as well.

Twitter is an excellent job seeking tool, if you know how to use it in this sense. Hashtagging is the process of putting a hashtag (#) in front of a word or collection of words that has no space in it. It allows the user to allocate a category inside a Tweet that can be used by others to find that Tweet.

Listed below are general job seeking hastags that can be used for any job:

#jobsearch
#job and #jobs
#jobhunt
#careerchat
#jobposting
#jobhuntchat
#recruiting
#careers
#careerchange
#dreamjob
#freelance
#hiring
#jobsearch(ing)
#unemployed
#needajob
#jobposting
#hirefriday                                                                                              #TweetMyJobs

You can also explore industry specific hashtags that one would use to target specific sectors:

#devjobs (Software/Web Development jobs)
#webjobs and #developerjobs (getting used slightly more now)
#IT and #ITjobs (IT & technical jobs)
#techjobs (Technical /IT /Engineering related jobs)
#marketing and #marketingjobs (Marketing Jobs)
#digitaljobs (Digital related jobs, digital design etc)
#salesjobs (Sales jobs)
#adminjobs (Admin and PA jobs)

#energyjobs and #greenjobs (Energy and environmental sector jobs)
#engineeringjobs (Engineering jobs)
#legaljobs (Legal profession jobs)
#graduate #grad #gradjobs #graduatejobs (Graduate jobs in any sector)

When posting a Tweet, consider uploading a picture along with the Tweet. Personalizing your Tweets can attract attention from a person or company that views the hashtag list associated with your Tweet. You can get even more creative by attaching your work, portfolio, etc. This will easily set you apart from the others who simply Tweet their thoughts.
