Tesla's Official X Handle Has Started Hiring Process On The Platform, But Netizens Are Still Unsure If It Can Do What LinkedIn Does

Tesla Inc. TSLA, the electric vehicle industry leader, has initiated its hiring process on Elon Musk’s social media platform (formerly Twitter), featuring a range of job openings on the official handle.

What Happened: On Thursday, Musk shared some screenshots showcasing the early stages of X’s recruiting feature. With these developments, candidates can now view and apply for open positions directly through Tesla’s official X profile.

Among the job listings displayed were a Software Engineering Internship based in Texas and a Simulation Software Engineer role in Palo Alto, California.

While many people in the comment section are appreciative of this feature, some also asked if XHiring can do what Microsoft Corporation’s MSFT LinkedIn is popular for.

It is pertinent to note that Tesla isn’t the only company hiring on X

Previously, it was reported that other prominent organizations, including Coinbase, Y Combinator, and Axios, have also joined the X platform to advertise their job openings. 

Why It’s Important: XHiring, the new feature under testing, is currently available exclusively to verified organizations on Twitter, rebranded as X earlier this year

It serves as a tool to help these companies feature crucial roles on their profiles and reach out to qualified candidates — a solution that made LinkedIn popular among netizens. 

It is worth noting that in the past, the tech billionaire has publicly criticized LinkedIn, labeling it as “cringe” and expressing his intention to introduce a better alternative. 

Having said that, Musk’s vision extends beyond just transforming the hiring process. His intention to develop X as an “everything app” includes the forthcoming integration of several features like the payment option and video calling capabilities.
