Labor Department Announces Job Postings via Twitter

Thursday, November 07, 2013 | 09:22am


NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development has launched a network of social media sites dedicated to quickly informing job seekers of local jobs, workshops, and job fairs. In a constant search for new avenues to inform Tennesseans about new job opportunities, the department joins the conversation 140 characters at a time to disseminate new jobs directly and instantly via Twitter.

“The vision of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development is to have the most employable workforce for business and industry in the nation,” said Dustin Swayne, Labor Deputy Commissioner. “Social media provides an efficient and effective way of distributing information back to our customers.”

Social media is all about sharing information. With features like Retweet and Favorite, the broad-reaching capabilities of Twitter can easily inform the Twitter community about new local jobs. Job seekers on Twitter can easily discover their next job because of a tweet that was shared directly on a Twitter feed. Since Twitter is accessible from either a computer or smartphone, the free service Twitter provides can land a job seeker employment faster than ever before.

Multiple Twitter accounts were launched to direct job tweets to specific regions of the state. For example, a new job post located near Memphis does not affect residents in Cookeville. The Memphis job opportunity will appear on the @TNCCMemphis handle in order to focus job announcements in that area. Each handle is named ‘TNCC’ followed by the name of the city. Nashville’s Twitter account is @TNCCNashville and Dyersburg’s handle is listed as @TNCCDyersburg.
