Job Seekers: Tweets You Should Be Following

Facebook, Myspace, blogs, LinkedIn, and Twitter are all popular Social Media sites leading the way to connecting people to a variety of helpful information. Today, job seekers have to be familiar with these sites in order to benefit from all the jobs that are out there.

Are you a job seeker that has not jumped on the fast- paced train of social media? Or, have you realized the necessity of these sites? Either way, today’s message focuses on Twitter and who you should be following if you are unemployed and looking for a job.

Twitter is one of the newest social media sites finding their way into the corporate world. Twitter allows anyone to post, but businesses utilize it to inform the public about what is going on with their company as well as what they are hiring for. So why is Twitter important to a job seeker? It’s simple, followers of Twitter can get cutting edge information before it ever hits anywhere else. Companies are constantly posting new information on their social media sites because it is quick, easy, and gets the word out to A LOT of people!
