Soon after the takeover of the microblogging platform Twitter, Elon Musk started imagining X as an ‘everything app’ that could do much more than just be a social media platform.

Now the vision is gradually taking shape, and X is slowly evolving into a job-hunting platform as well. Recently the company revealed that over 1 million companies on X are looking to hire candidates.
