If you are tweeting, you’re using Twitter and it is fast becoming an excellent resource for your job search. Twitter continues to see a tremendous increase in users every day and so it only stands to reason that more and more organizations are recognizing the potential of a growing talent pool and posting available jobs on Twitter.
The new HAPPEN blog has an excellent post from a recent presentation by Rick Stomphorst, Tweaking your Job Search with Twitter. You will find information on creating your Twitter name, a job seekers bio and linking your Linkedin URL.
