Land Your Next Job with a 140 Character "Twesume"

Land Your Next Job with a 140 Character "Twesume" | Career Trends | Scoop.it

In essence, a Twesume is a short bio or resume condensed into 140 characters or less, which can be tweeted, messaged or emailed to potential employers.

Twesumes help job seekers get noticed by companies who use social recruiting. With the Twesume, a job seeker can introduce himself and engage with an employer in less time (and space) than a traditional resume and cover letter could ever manage.


How Can I Write My Own Twesume?

All you need is a Twitter account and something to say. Once you have your Twitter account squared away, write your very own Twesume. While the Twesume can be anything you like, try to include this information: what you do, an accomplishment, a goal, skills and/or a link to a detailed profile or website.

 

Have you ever heard about Twesume?

It could be a short bio or resume for your career by using twitter.

Here are some tips. Check it!

This statistic is surprising to me:
– even in a down market: in 2010, nearly 45% of all employment offers reported to the National Association of Colleges and Employers were made by companies to former interns.

I am curious how statistics in Korea compare to these US statistics. Good luck this week Jody.

Lessons Learned – Job Search Strategies

Lessons Learned – Job Search Strategies | Career Trends | Scoop.it

Here are some eyebrow-raising realities to consider about jobs today.

*Top ten jobs in 2010 did not exist in 2004.

*We’re preparing students for jobs that don’t exist today.

*Most employees will have 10-14 jobs by age 38.

As these trends and new ones arise, it will be important to determine what your pathway to job security is going to be. What worked last year may not work this year. With this in mind, you will need to determine what approaches are necessary to succeed in the ever-shifting job market.

Approach your job search with the same level of commitment you will bring to an organization when you’re hired. The truth is that before someone at your next company begins supervising or managing you, YOU are your own supervisor and manager.

 

Ask yourself this question, “If I were my supervisor or manager right now would I be pleased with the work I’m doing?” The answer to this question will tell you whether or not you need to bring yourself and your activities to another level of intensity.

Here’s how to get serious...
