Flight Centre, a worldwide travel agency based in Brisbane, Australia, used social media to advertise and hire for their social media positions. Says their Toronto-based global social media leader Gregg Tilston, the company asked applicants for five of their personal social media links, a 140-character “cover letter” on why they’d be a great fit for Flight Centre, and a 140-character resume—all to be posted to Twitter confidentially. “I certainly believe that small businesses absolutely can utilize this [method] from a transparency perspective and get a lot more insight into their perspective employees,” says Tilston.
