Use Twitter for Job HuntingThe advice is well known: as soon as you’re back on the streets, looking for work, you:
  • Update your resume
  • Tweak your LinkedIn profile
  • Browse the job boards
  • Apply to every open position that makes sense
  • Tell family, friends and professional colleagues that you’re looking
But there’s more you can do: Although Twitter is best known for silly, superficial, in-the-moment communications among people who know each other personally, it’s increasingly coming into use as a networking medium among people who have never met.

With Twitter accumulating active, involved users at a breath-taking pace, there are starting to be ways to use this communications channel for job hunting - ways that didn’t exist just a short time ago.

These include:

1) Tweet your needs to your friends and followers. It’s smart to use Twitter to let everyone in your network know you’re back in the hunt for a good position. Not only may you reach people not included in LinkedIn, Facebook, and your other networks, people who tweet are often an active, plugged-in group. In many cases, your contacts on Twitter will quickly offer you strong leads, or at least useful contacts, you can pursue as you search for your next job.

woman working on laptop #14With Social Media so hot today, it’s important to add this valuable and interpersonal dimension to your hunt for a new or better job. Here are seven techniques to help you piggyback to a paycheck by means of Social Media:

1. Create a brief description of your strengths and areas of expertise. Keep it short and simple. Sure, you know a lot more than you can fit into this description, and you’ve got a lot more going for you than just these few items. But for this job-seeking exercise, small is beautiful. Use this description as your foundation for your Social Media communications to follow.

2. Start a blog on a topic that falls within your description of yourself. Use any of the popular blog sites, such as Wordpress or Blogger. Make a commitment to add a new entry to this blog at least twice a week.

3. Write up a signature file for your emails that captures the essence of your description. Keep it under 40 words. Include both an email address and a link to your new blog. Attach this signature file to every email you send out.
