How to Effectively Use Twitter as a Job Search Resource by Elisha Hartwig

I feel like this is an appropriate topic to talk about because with us all being college students the job search is something important to all of us. With social media recourses becoming more and more influential and helpful in the real job search I find articles like this as an honest and useful resource in giving yourself any advantage over other competitors.

“Don’t just use your Twitter as a means of self-promotion — be interested in what other people are doing and engage with them. Share others’ stuff before your share your own.” I really liked this quote because I thought it is by far the most important point. When people use social sites as a mean of self-promotion I think it is too easy to make yourself look bad by talking yourself up too much. I like how she pointed this out and wanted to express how important it is to share some of other peoples stuff to show what type of topics and information interest you.

  1. Mike,
    “Don’t just use your Twitter as a means of self-promotion — be interested in what other people are doing and engage with them. Share others’ stuff before your share your own.”

    I like this quote as well. You can take this into realtime networking. How annoying is it when you’re at a dinner party or something and someone is just talking about themselves? As you are applying for jobs, really take this advice and ask your potential employers about THEM. Ask what they are excited about, what sort of things inspire them about the job. — Makes for a great interview and conversation.

    Great post,
    J
