Tweet Your Way to The Boardroom: Social Media and Maximizing Your Job Search

July 30, 2012  |  

Twitter

Oh, the tangled webs we weave for ourselves on one of the fastest-growing social networking sites, Twitter. This site is a blessing and a curse for some, as 140 characters becomes the beginning (and end) of relationships, friendships and even some jobs. If you already have a job that you don’t enjoy, don’t let Twitter become your venting space, especially if your page is public. You are inviting employers and co-workers to see you in a whole different light.

Many career websites and companies have Twitter accounts that blast open positions daily. Follow the companies you are interested in working for, get familiar with their social media presence and interact with them, retweeting and favoriting certain tweets.

Also, there are many Twitter accounts that give job searching and resume advice. Make sure you are in the know of the latest ways to make your resume and job search better.

Another way to maximize Twitter during a job search is establishing yourself and being consistent. Just like your LinkedIn or Facebook accounts, make sure your profile picture, bio and URL link are all in sync with how you want to be presented to employers.
