Check-in and Find a Job !!! Is this Possible? (foursquare)

Did you Check-in today !!!!

Well, Check-in via foursquare has really picked up, and creating a decent space in the Social Networking World. foursquare is a location-based social networking website based on software for mobile devices. This service is available to users with GPS-enabled mobile devices, such as smartphones. Users “check-in” at venues using a mobile website, text messaging or a device-specific application by running the application and selecting from a list of venues that the application locates nearby.

In my previous posts i had mentioned about “Are you Posting Jobs on Twitter and Facebook for Recruiting . Hence just wanted to try out something new with Foursquare.
As a pilot project, just tried to identify certain places where IT Professionals Check-in via Foursquare, and try to see the number of people checking into that particular area. All i did was post a Job Opening (In the Tips section). So every time and individual checks- in the location, they will get a info about Job Openings. And based on their interest, they might send across their resumes.

Following are some of the samples for your reference:

In this particular sample, Magarpatta / Magarpatta Cyber City and DLF are locations in Pune, India, where there are lot many IT organizations. Hence every time an individual checks-in, he/she will get to see a tip regarding that location. I have posted a job Requirement in the tips section. On the right hand side, you can also see the number of check-in made till date.

 Although this is just a small start, as the number of users in India are not as high as other European countries, but people are picking it up quickly. As the number of users will increase, the check-ins will also increase, thus the visibility of such job openings will improve.

So did you Check-in today !!!!

Looking forward to your views, comments on this topic.
