Twitter 101


How do you use Twitter for your job search?

Often when I meet people looking for jobs, and I mention they should be using Twitter I get a Gasp and some Wide Eyes.
Using Twitter is Easy and it’s Free and it’s growing in popularity with recruiters posting roles.

How to search Twitter to find a job
Go to Twitter and sign up for a free account http://www.twitter.com
The hardest part is thinking of a user name, your first initial and last name always works
Hashtags # are used to help sort and file information on Twitter
Type in the search string #toronto (or any other city) and #job and you’ll see all the jobs in the city that are posted

NEAT!!
