Having more than 302 million active users a month, Twitter is still one of the best resources for staffing and recruiting companies.

Before getting down to business, you need to understand that the account is only for sharing available jobs and relevant information about businesses that are hiring. And given the fact that Twitter only provides your with 140 characters to get your message out there, remember that beating around the bush won’t work. It should be something like this: “Translator in NYC needed, competitive salary, apply at (shortened url).”

Also, consider using some of the following hashtags: #NAJ (twitter lingo for ‘Need A Job?’), #employment, #recruiting, #hiring, #jobpost #job #translatorjob.
