Twitterville Notebook: Sodexo's Arie Ball - Global Neighbourhoods

In short, there’s a LOT happening on Twitter in terms of job searching and recruiting. This probably accelerate because these are tough economic times. There are surely more jobs being sought, than offered. But there clearly are some jobs out there and you can find them pretty easily on Twitter.

This is no surprise to Sodexo, the North American leader in managing food services and facilities. If you ever experienced the cuisine in a hospital, senior citizen center, college, medical or military facility, then you have probably eaten one of the 10 million meals they serve each day at 6000 locations in the Canada, the US and Mexico.

Sodexo, employs 120,000 people, but the big news is the company is in hire mode. In addition to plans to hire 1800 recent college grads, the company intends to add on over 5000 managers, professionals, and executives this year. These include General Managers, Chefs, Facilities Engineers, Environmental Services Managers, Dietitians, District Managers, vice presidents, and roles in Finance, HR, IS&T, Communications, Supply Management and more.
And despite these troubled times, their business is growing and they are hiring. What brings it to this blog is that Sodexo, a company that has been named as one of the best places to work, is using Twitter as an executive recruiting tool.
