Finding a job is difficult enough, but now the City of Allentown has made it easier for job seekers by launching a service that combines mobil technology and social media. Mayor Pawlowski recently announced Allentown TweeMyJobs, a new online jobs platform that revolutionizes job recruitment by offering an easy and user-friendly online tool to find employment.
The TweetMyJobs platform is a cutting-edge job matching process which helps users learn about available jobs faster and helps employers reach qualified, local candidates fast and at no cost. The service provides job seekers with information on thousands of jobs in multiple industries at all levels of employment.
“We have enough jobs available right now to significantly cut our unemployment rate,” said Pawlowski. “By adopting new technology and leveraging social media to drive local employment solutions, Allentown TweetMyJobs presents a unique opportunity to connect those dots and create a stronger foundation for future job growth throughout the region.”
The Mayor made the announcement at a news conference at Lehigh Carbon Community College’s Donley Center. He was joined by Lehigh Valley Workforce Investment Board, Inc. Executive Director Nancy Dischinat, Allentown Neighborhood Improvement Zone Development Authority board member Nelson Diaz, TweetMyJobs Vice President/Client Services Bo Kemp, Lehigh Carbon Community College President Dr. Ann Bieber and community employers.
Individuals who register at http://allentown.tweetmyjobs.com will receive relevant job matches instantaneously by e-mail, text message, or from social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Allentown TweetMyJobs also offers people the opportunity to tap into their Facebook network to get introductions from their friends who are connected to hiring companies, which provides them with a great competitive edge. In addition, employers in the Allentown and the Lehigh Valley area who are seeking to fill open positions can use Allentown TweetMyJobs to advertise their jobs at no cost. The Allentown TweetMyJobs service also enables job seekers to view available jobs in their neighborhood through an incredible smartphone application.

The service is a partnership between the Mayor of Allentown, Lehigh Valley Workforce Investment Board, Inc. and TweetMyJobs.
