Social media is a wonderful for way for job seekers to set themselves apart from competitors. While most people use social media to converse with friends, family, and co-workers, it is important for job seekers to spend their time making connections that will lend themselves to future employment opportunities.

One of the top social media sites is Twitter! Twitter allows users to send small messages (140 characters or less), complete with a hyper-link in seconds.

Here are several tips to help job seekers utilize the power of Twitter.


1. Create a unique, yet appropriate twitter handle.

Example: NYCJobSeeker, ATLSalesRep, etc.

2. Follow the right people.

Start by following companies within the industry you wish to work. Next, identify top leaders within each of these companies and follow them. Doing so will help you stay up-to-date with what’s happening in your chosen career field.

3. Publish tweets that are meaningful and effective.

When creating a tweet, make sure that you have a proper understanding of how to use the # symbol! For more information, read Best Practices for Hashtags.

4. Stay in-the-know!

Finally, most companies will tweet about open positions; therefore, check twitter frequently to learn about the “hot” jobs first! Utilize the # symbol to assist in your search. For example, if you want to know about jobs in Atlanta, GA, then search for #Atlanta #jobs in the search field of your twitter account.
