Twitter Job Search

As you embark on a Twitter job search, remember that what you put out there in social media will live on even after you are over it.  Keep that in mind as you master these Twitter job search strategies.

  • Twitter is a great tool for job search research.  Follow companies where you might want to intern or work. Evaluate the level of diversity you observe on their career pages.
  • Use Twitter to connect with recruiters.  Don’t be shy about asking recruiters questions.  Do not stalk them but honestly ask about their recruitment strategies for meeting diverse candidates.
  • Use Twitter lists to catalog information by subject or career areas of interest.  This can be a handy resource in a job search.
  • In a job search, use Twitter to help find information about career workshops and events as they happen on your college campus.
