A large portion of a businesses’ advertisement budget is dedicated to their social marketing campaigns to try and build brand awareness and followers. As a job seeker, you need to do the same as these companies by marketing yourself as well. These hashtags for job seekers can help you find new opportunities and connect with recruiters and hiring managers.
Hashtagging is the process of putting a hashtag (#) in front of a word or collection of words that has no space in it.

Personalizing your posts this way can attract attention from a person or company that views the hashtag list associated with your post. You can get even more creative by attaching your work, portfolio, etc. This will easily set you apart from others and maximize your visibility.
