Landing Your Next Job by Tweeting

I shared some social-media job search tactics in November. This MSNBC News video shows us two specific examples of how people used Twitter to find jobs. Lessons learned from these two examples include:
  • Tweet like an expert --- for job seekers, social media is no longer a tool for personal communications; everything posted on social media is open to the public and should be professional.
  • Use Twitter hashtags (i.e. @LinchiKwok)
  • Connect with recruiters and current employees of the company
  • Build a relevant network
  • Start a “Hire Me” campaign
  • Take it offline --- continue a conversation with potential employers with e-mails or phone, or meet with them in person.
Within this blog, we also discussed the power of Twitter several times. What are your experiences with Twitter? How would you like to try using Twitter in job search?
