Twitter is one of the most innovative and useful tools for navigating the job market. Yet, it’s also the tool least understood and used by those who need it most, say the co-authors of the recently released book The Twitter Job Search Guide.
“We’re on a mission to change that,” says co-author Susan Britton Whitcomb. “Twitter can give job seekers a much-needed edge in today’s job market. It helps them uncover little-known opportunities, research employers, enhance their visibility, expand their network and much more.”
To achieve these advantages, job seekers don’t have to spend several hours a day glued to their computer or BlackBerry. All it takes is about 15 minutes a day, says Whitcomb and co-authors Chandlee Bryan and Deb Dib.
“We like the concept of spending 15 well-planned, solidly productive minutes a day on Twitter, at least initially, because it imposes a strategy and discipline that keeps you focused on the big picture—your job search—rather than getting lost online. While Twitter is great way to expand your network and reach, transitioning those relationships to off-line connections is an essential element of a successful search,” explains Bryan.
In The Twitter Job Search Guide, the co-authors offer ten strategies to help individuals maximize their time on the site in just 15 minutes a day.
