Tuesday’s Tip: Twitter Time

Posted by Kevin Crews - The Career Strategist on March 8, 2011 in Job Tip |
The time has come for job seekers to step up and learn to speak Twitterese. This tool can dramatically increase your job search awareness and effectiveness, and you cannot run a full blown job search without it.

The first step is to get a Twitter account from www.twitter.com. Make sure it is either your name or your "brand name". The next statement might surprise you, but I don't want you to send a tweet to anyone for at least 2 months. The magic of using Twitter for your job search is not in tweeting messages, but rather, it is in all of the supporting applications, tools, and widgets that have been created to support the twits.

So spend the next few months playing around with these applications listed at http://www.squidoo.com/twitterapps - then after you have become addicted, you may send your first tweet and become part of the club.
