Elon Musk’s X has added a new job search feature that will make it easier for users to find a suitable job.

In Short

  • X has a new job-search feature.
  • Users can filter jobs on basis of seniority.
  • Elon Musk shared the development.

lon Musk has talked of converting X into the “everything app” for a long time and since his takeover in 2022, the platform has not been the same. X, earlier called Twitter, was a platform where users could only share their thoughts with the world in limited characters. But now, users can share long-form videos, write longer tweets, purchase a premium subscription, and a lot more. X is also aiming to turn into a job search platform and as per latest reports, the company just added a new feature that takes it a step closer to LinkedIn.

A post by web developer Nima Owji revealed X’s new feature in job search that lets users filter the results as per experience level. Not only this, people can also look up jobs from specific companies. These two features are already a part of LinkedIn.

“#X keeps working on the search filters for the job search! You’ll also be able to choose the seniority and also search for jobs from specific companies,” Owji wrote in his post.

The post was re-shared by Doge Designer and eventually by X boss, Elon Musk himself.

Last month, X had revealed that more than 1 million companies on the platform were looking to hire candidates.

Over a million job postings have already been posted on X across various industries, a post by X Hiring said. Elon Musk had also reshared the post on the platform.

The post read, “There are more than 1 million job postings live on X right now! Companies across AI, financial services, SaaS, and more are finding qualified candidates using X Hiring every day.”

Apart from turning into a job search platform, X is also finding multiple ways to help users connect with each other. Recently, X allowed users without a premium subscription to make audio and video calls. Earlier, this feature was only limited to Premium subscribers.

Enrique Barragan, an engineer at X, recently announced the update on the platform, signalling a notable expansion in the accessibility of the app’s calling capabilities.

X had introduced audio and video calling for iOS users last year, initially offering it as a premium feature before opening it up to a broader audience.

Earlier this year, the feature of making calls was made available for Android users. However, it remained limited to premium subscribers. Elon Musk had previously hinted at a broader rollout by the end of January, talking about the company’s commitment to ensure the feature’s robustness before opening it up to all users.

And that is not all. In addition to letting all users make audio and video calls, X introduced a brand new option – to select how they receive calls from people in the app. X users can adjust their settings, and choose to receive calls only from people they are following, or to receive calls from anyone on the platform.
