“How I Made A Hire Through #BINGJOBSLIVE Twitter-Chat” By Barna Chatterjee


It all started with the Twitter-Chat session on Friday, March 30, 2012.  OSD Staffing’s team hosted its first #BINGJOBSLIVE “Twitter-Chat.”  We wanted to promote #Bing as an employer of choice and increase the number of @BingJobs followers on Twitter. Along the way, we wanted to promote a variety of job opportunities, such as Bing Platform Senior Program Manager.

Emilio was one of the Tweeters who approached us and he started talking to one of our Staffing Consultant, Suman Akerman @sumaness. He exchanged notes with Suman related to the Bing Twitter-Chat. In chatting with Suman, she mentioned to Emilio that I was the recruiter on the Operations Program Manager role in Bing Domain Team, which he was interested in. That is how Emilio was able to get in touch with me and we started talking about the Program Manager opportunity and how he might be a perfect fit for the role. My hiring manager on the  Bing Domain Team liked his profile and we were soon in the screening Emilio.  To make a long story short, Emilio interviewed and accepted out offer, he started with the Bing Domain team on May 29th.

WOO-HOO!  That’s the power of social media and of our Twitter chat sessions. I am so looking forward to our next #BingJobsLive Twitter-Chat on Friday, June 1st  at 10:30 (PDT). Please follow us @bingjobs & @chatbarna.  Perhaps you might be the next person I hire through the power of Twitter!
