There is a lot of talk about how the way we work has changed, and although most jobs are in-person in an office, there are more and more options that offer hybrid work or 100% teleworking. However, not so much is said about how the way of finding a job has changed, which has also changed a lot, and one of those responsible for this is the LinkedIn app.
LinkedIn is a platform that works a bit like a work social network, where users publish, share and interact with content related to their work life. But in this app there are more sections and one of the most notable and why many people decide to create a profile is because this service also serves to find a job.
In fact, it even has a specific section called Jobs where companies can publish their vacancies and users interested in that position can send their application in a simple way. But the truth is that this is not the only way in which users can find a new position, as there are other ways to inform candidates that a company is hiring.
Here the hashtags (#) come into action ‘Hiring’ which means hiring in English. They usually put this in their profile photo with a purple band the people your company is looking for new employees so that your vacancy announcement reaches further.
LinkedIn launched this feature along with the other hashtag ‘OpenToWork’ which serves the same purpose, but in this case it is the worker who informs that he is available to start a new job.
With this function, it is indicated in a more direct and clear way that The company a person works for is looking for new talent to hire. and in this way the job offer announcement is not only announced in the specific section of Jobs.
