“I feel we are often looking in the wrong place to get an accurate portrayal of the job market. In fact, they are creating a perception that it is worse than it actually is,” said Joe Budzienski, co-founder of Gozaik. “Millions of enterprises are demonstrating that they are still hiring, but are opting to recruit on Twitter as it is cost effective. In addition, businesses leveraging Gozaik are realizing the benefits of more targeted tweets, which garner more results.”
