@soylamar As an unemployed college student what can I do to take advantage of Twitter?
- Search & Save. Use relevant and popular hash tags such as #jobs or #careers, combine them with your ideal location such as #NJ #NY or a city #NYC. Save the search and you can always go back to check out the recent tweets with the hash tag.
- Find & Follow. Find the twitter accounts for recruiters of the organizations where you would like to work. Follow them and save these accounts in lists. If your stream gets flooded you can easily go back to the list and check out their latest tweets.
- File in Favorites. While reading my stream, three jobs were tweeted and I wanted to mark them for this blog post. I selected them as favorites by clicking the star. So these were kept in my favorites, easy to find and retrieve.
- Connect & Network. When you follow interesting people interacting is easy. You realize that job openings are generally filled through word of mouth recruiting. Twitter is great a vehicle for connectors. For example, my friends own their businesses, they asked me to help them fill job openings, I posted this information on facebook and tweeted about it.
