Zappos Ditches Job Posts, Replaces Them With a Social Network
It's common practice for companies to look at prospective employees’ social media accounts to get a better sense of who they are beyond a resume and cover letter. Zappos is taking that one step further. The Las Vegas-based shoe retailer announced that it's doing away with traditional job postings. Instead, interested folks will need to join Inside Zappos, a new social network for the company's prospective employees. Joining the network will give applicants "priority consideration" for upcoming job openings. The network allows recruiters to get to know applicants and their interests, while allowing applicants to network with existing employees.
