Using Twitter as Part of Your Job Search
As Social Media continues to explode, Twitter has experienced some of the most significant growth in the last year. As users seek to receive constant updates on subjects that interest them, job hunting has obviously increased during this same time. Twitter can be a useful, practically real-time tool to supplement a job hunt. With TweetMyJobs.com, which uses the Twitter platform, users can search jobs for free by signing up for various job channels. Companies can post jobs on the site as well. When a job becomes available on a job channel for which a person has subscribed based on geography and industry, the person instantly receives a text message on his or her cell phone notifying them of the opportunity. In today's job hunting climate, job seekers need to have a balanced approach to networking and resume exposure. Twitter and TweetMyJobs may be another avenue to consider.
