When the Twitter social media platform began a few years ago, people couldn’t imagine how relevant 140 characters could be. Many thought it wouldn’t last. Well it has. Twitter has grown to be a favorite for millions sharing and communicating about every possible subject you can imagine. Like most Twitter users, we have carved out our little corner of Twitter where we meet, greet and tweet on issues related to workplace diversity, professional development, career advice and work success. My audience is primarily African American college students, emerging and experienced professionals and entrepreneurs. Basically, if you are about life success through career success, job search, education, college life, human resources, leadership, industry and professional branding – our Twitter page is a resource. Although there are hundreds, if not thousands of Twitter pages where career experts dole out free advice, insight and information, there are many diverse college students that don’t know where to go for career success ti[s. To help, we assembled this 2015 List of 25 Twitter Pages Diverse Students Should Follow.
Why these 25 Twitter Pages Diverse Students Should Follow?
Why, in my opinion, are these 25 Twitter pages diverse students should follow?
*They include images of a diverse workforce.
*No issue seems off limits.
*They share honest advice my students and emerging professionals need to hear.
*They stay current (a biggie for me).
*The advice shared is in line with one of the 5 Points in the Career Development Model that I believe works.
Of course we would love for you to follow us @HBCUCareerCntr where we primarily serve the diverse community of students, employees, families and alumni of America’s 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities. As usual, my lists are never in a particular order, because they are all equally valuable.
