Instagram, Twitter is Turning into New Hiring Destinations for Indian Companies

If you thought that youngsters are wasting their time on social media sites like Instagram or Twitter, you may want to think again, as top IT companies are now turning to these networks to lure the best young minds to join them. Big brands like Infosys, Accenture, IBM, and Wipro have a strong presence on Twitter, having official handles solely dedicated to careers with thousands of followers. Whereas Instagram’s picture-heavy and personal feel is being used to create more intimate connections with potential employees. For instance, Accenture targets millennials and lateral hires through its Instagram page that is dedicated to careers.

The idea here is to use the power of employees’ own social media networks to find and hire the right candidates. So, if you are looking for some great opportunities, you can follow the social media handles of these big brands and get a job opportunity in the domain of your choice.
