Wouldn't want to be a 2012 grad for all the tea in China given the lackluster state of economy and hiring. Great, helpful post by maxOz may help dull the pain some. If I had it to do over again I would start my first company at 22 not 35 because 1. WHY NOT and 2. see #1. Great Scoop Michele. Marty

Marty, how are you doing .Agree wholeheartedly. Although there is an advantage to being 35, older, experienced, pinch of wisdom and being able to work smarter, not harder xxx

Can you Tweet your way to a better job? | Career Trends |

More and more companies are using Twitter to seek employees, with many Tweets looking like an online version of the classified ads of the past. Developing an effective and efficient Twitter strategy for your job search is a smart idea.

Statistics show that job search networking is much more effective when you make ‘loose’ connections – touching base with people beyond your immediate circle whose networks and contacts are much different from your own. Twitter offers an unparalleled opportunity to create an extended network.


Topics covered by this post are:


1 - What Can Twitter Do For You?

2 - Unique Aspects of Twitter

3 - Getting started

4 - Sustain Your Twitter Network


Twitter is also one of very important tools for our job hunt.

Let's check the way to a better job with twitter.
