OREANDA-NEWS. In 2015 the virtual Job Fair generated over 70,000 tweets #YourJob, over 30,000 of them in France, with 1,100 mentioning BNP Paribas. This helped to raise the profile of BNP Paribas in a year in which the Group is recruiting close to 3,000 permanent staff in France and 20,000 worldwide.

Throughout the event BNP Paribas Human Resources teams will refresh the @bnpp_recrut account with tweets about job opportunities, including permanent jobs, sandwich-course opportunities and other positions, plus information on recruitment issues and answers to applicants’ questions, with a special feature from 2.30 to 4pm showcasing our Recruitment Day on 21 May at the Roland Garros tennis stadium.

The #YourJob initiative is an essential part of BNP Paribas strategy. “BNP Paribas has put a great deal of effort into Twitter for a number of years now. In addition to recruitment events we run or participate in on the microblogging site – #WeLoveIT, #JointheTeam, and of course #YourJob 2015 – Twitter meets our need for interactivity and spontaneity in our relationship with job applicants,” explained B?atrice Perrot, BNP Paribas Deputy Head of Recruitment, France.

In addition to Twitter and various other social networks that BNP Paribas uses for recruitment, job applicants can contact job experts on the Backstage site, benefit from the advice of Dr Job, and discover the diverse range of businesses and career opportunities at the Group using a special guide – see below.

Last but not least, BNP Paribas is throwing its full weight behind the international dimension of this online Jobs event: all Group subsidiaries will be participating, and Group establishments in countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey and Italy will take part in the Twitter initiative with dedicated hashtags, such as #JobFair in English.
