Elon Musk's X launches ‘job hiring feature’ to challenge LinkedIn in professional networking
X launches Hiring, a job search feature for verified organizations, aiming to challenge LinkedIn. $1,000 monthly fee.
Billionaire Elon Musk's microblogging platform ‘X’ (formerly Twitter) has introduced a new job-hiring feature that offers verified organizations an opportunity to post job listings on their profiles. The company said that the feature will help concerned companies find relevant candidates for the job roles featured on X Hiring Beta.
Recently, X has entered the domain of professional networking with a beta version of Hiring, a new feature to challenge job search websites like LinkedIn, according to a report published by CNBC.
“Sign up for early access to X Hiring, currently available for Verified Organizations. If eligible, we'll enable the Hiring features on your account," the company wrote on its website.
Currently, the Hiring feature is available only for verified organizations. The company charges a monthly fee of $1,000 (around ₹82,300) for the job-hiring feature on its platform, the report said.
After launching the new Hiring feature, observers called it a crucial step towards making X an ‘everything app’. However, it may not turn out to be an immediate challenge to LinkedIn, but the move indicates its intentions to widen its scope in the tech industry, as per CNBC reports.
X has witnessed a slew of modifications since Elon Musk's takeover last year. He has recently shared a photo on X featuring his son, X Æ A-XII. In the picture, the child is seen standing in front of a prominent X logo.
In Elon Musk's shared image, his son, lovingly referred to as Lil X, can be observed donning a white t-shirt along with knee-length khaki pants.
He's captured holding a tumbler in his hand, with a wide, joyful grin on his face, as he gazes directly at the camera. Positioned before a large white X emblem displayed on a black wall, the scene is captured perfectly.
