X Is Adding More Job Functionalities Amid Tests For Direct Email Contact Sharing Of Subscribers With Creators

Elon Musk is paving the way for better job functionalities on the X app after seeing the platform’s success with Job Listings.

Today, hundreds of firms are opening up roles through their X profile accounts, just 60 days since we saw the feature launch. Therefore, it makes sense as to why the tech entrepreneur wants to further expand on the notion with things like job recommendations, innovative means to share listings, and more discovery elements.

For starters, the app is soon rolling out concept images for sharing jobs. These can be found on DMs, posts on your feed, or across the platform’s communities. Hence, wherever a URL for a job is shared through X, you’ll find these popping up.

This is expected to give rise to more amplifications regarding positions on the platform, and that will generate options for sharing and better engagement. Moreover, in case you didn’t know, the app’s DMs are becoming awfully popular with passing time as more and more users get private and steer clear of public posts.

The feature is bound to create more awareness regarding jobs, depending on people’s interests and we do see this opening doors for better job tools through this app and eventually bringing in more business.

While firms are paying a whopping $1000 each month to attain access, this could be another factor worth considering. Additionally, X also mentioned how it’s going to launch job recommendations linked to the types of communities users are on, the ads they click, the positions they want, and which profiles of firms they’re visiting. So we can see how the recommendations will be better aligned to their likes and interests.

This past week, we saw X launch a revamped privacy policy to better cater to these findings. And they claimed that collecting users’ personal details like employment, likes, skills, searches, preferences, and more can help the app get you the position or job that you’re seeking.

In this manner, you get to share information with employers you might end up working for in the future whenever you make that job application. Similarly, it gives employers a better chance to find the candidate of choice for a suitable role, while putting out ads that are relevant.

So as you can see, it’s like making preparations for the next stage but we’re yet to get a lot more details on this front from the firm itself. And if that’s not enough, we’re hearing more about how the app is also making plans to add centralized listings for positions that were advertised on the platform. This will come with advanced search functionalities for specific roles. And in case you didn’t realize, it’s going to be very similar to the approach taken on by LinkedIn but Musk has despised the thought of copying the arch-rival.

In other news, we’re hearing more about how the platform is testing out a new feature that would allow subscribers to share their email contact details with the creators that they’re following. This is obviously an optional choice.

The news comes after the world’s richest person promised the same to his X creator community and it appears that it’s finally happening.

We saw the update published by X News Daily where the company is working on launching a checkbox across the subscribe pop-up. This would assist subscribers to take on email sharing. When accepted, the platform allows ID sharing that is in line with its Sharing Terms Policy.

This gives creators major access to contact means done off the app, which can be valuable for them.
