HCL Technologies turns to Twitter for employee recruitment

HCL Technologies is looking to social media to help with recruiting.

The $5 billion global IT services provider, which has a location in Redmond, recently launched the first-ever Twitter recruitment campaign called #COOLESTINTERVIEWEVER to find five qualified individuals, one of whom will work on a one-year project with the company.

HCL is based in India, but this is a global campaign and selected candidates will work from the nearest HCL office in his/her own country.

One individual will be selected for the positions of Ideapreneurship Evangelist, Big Data Guru, Hacker-in-Chief, Digital Voyager and Womenspiration, and one person will be chosen as the overall winner.

In addition to working with HCL, the winner will receive a prize of $75,000 and access to an HCL mentor in their particular field. In concert with HCL's employee first, customer second management philosophy, this initiative is one of the company's many approaches to finding new talent.
