Effectively Using Twitter to Find a Job

Effectively Using Twitter to Find a Job 

We can’t say this enough – using social media to find work is finding the balance between propriety, brevity and creativity; especially with a service such as Twitter that offers an extremely limited space for a status update.

The Internet is replete with stories of people finding jobs through their social media and Twitter networks, so obviously, it can be done. Having a positive attitude helps.

The first rule is “keep it short.”

The second rule is to use strategy and maximize the scope of Twitter’s reach for your benefit.
