TwitterJobSearch has launched, the first smart job search engine that actually extracts meaning from Twitter content. TwitterJobSearch creates a real-time global “online resource” for all jobs posted onto Twitter.
TwitterJobSearch uses relevancy algorithms developed by Workhound, the UK’s largest job search engine. The technology builds out into further social media channels and topics, providing semantic intelligence capabilities for social media platforms, business and consumers.
I did a search for “search engine optimization” on TwitterJobSearch, and found that there were 3164 SEO jobs posted right now on Twitter:
TwitterJobSearch looks at the content of every tweet in context to determine its intent and break out filterable data. Getting beyond the 140-character limit, the technology also looks at biography information and crawls destination URLs to find additional information. The real-time relevancy engine and algorithms determine whether the post was a feed, retweet or original message, what language was used, whether the tweeter has previously posted job vacancies and how words used categorize the content.
Also, there is a Buzz option that “frames” certain keywords on Twitter search in order to provide you with more relevent, timely results, showing you what’s buzzing right now:
Additional context is added wherever possible to ensure the tweet appears in search results if it is missing vital data such as location. As an example, “Sales director London job” on search.twitter.com brings back 4 results, while the same search on http://www.twitterjobsearch.com/ provides 6202 opportunities, while “Marketing manager New York job” provides 19 and 4122 respectively.
This initial launch means that anyone online can now access the wealth of job opportunities posted onto Twitter, regardless of whether they are a member. There were 26,090 unique English language vacancies posted onto Twitter over the last 7-day period, which equates to around 3% of live vacancies. TwitterJobSearch requires no registration and is free to use.
