  • Why Twitter?Lots of jobs posted there – thousands dailyJob seekers don’t have to register or post a resume firstCasual, informal atmosphere – great for networkingImmediate access to experts in your field
  • 4 most popular job-related hashtags.
  • Vetted tags on Twitter – didn’t just make up
  • Search for #jobs #healthcare. Results are relevant.
  • Note web address for siteSearches can be narrowed by zip code, or range around
  • This is what Twitter’s search page looks like.
  • Click advanced search to access advanced options.
  • These are advanced search options. (Briefly go over fields.)Note that you don’t use special characters in “People” fields or “hashtag” field. System will fill in.
  • Sample search for administrative assistant, hashtag “job”, within 25 mi range of 55101 (downtown St. Paul).
  • Results we got. About 3 pages worth for last 7 days. All very accurate.Note: can pull feeds for searches.
  • Now going to talk about third-party websites that can help you find jobs on Twitter
  • These are sites we’ll look atFirst 4 sites have job postings, next two sites have features to help you find jobs on Twitter.
  • First – TweetMyJobs.comThis is the most robust third-party website that searches for jobs on Twitter. Lots of big corporations pay TMJ to tweet jobs for them (point out icons)You don’t have to create account with site, but if you do there are some perks. We’ll talk first about what you can get without logging in.
  • Site features a map which mashes up jobs with locations.
  • Screencap of map. Map will geolocate to your current position.You need to pick job type at top and filter.
  • This example, I filtered “Sales”Site congregates listings by area, so you’ll get a few pins rather than a pin for every job.Don’t be discouraged if you only get one or two pins. Click pin to access link for all job posts in that area.Note that you can also search map by company (right side of screen).That’s the map…
  • So that’s the map, back on homepage…Site has some other options, just click on Jobseekers at top.This will take you to the manual search options…
  • This is JobSeekers page. To manually search for jobs without setting up an account, enter info in lower right box.
  • So we’re going to search for admin assist job within 25 miles of Mpls
  • This is what search results look like. Found 19 jobs that had been tweeted. (note: site only shows jobs that IT tweets)So those are the things you can do without an account. With an account…
  • …jobseekers can subscribe to channels. Channels are feeds of specific jobs in a specific location.This is screen they’ll see after logging in to TMJ. To get to channels, they’ll need to scroll down.
  • Select area at bottom to find Channels.
  • To select a channel, select the city you wish to search in and the field of job, then click “filter list.” If there is a channel for that city/field, it will appear at bottom. Click green Plus sign to subscribe.
  • Shows up as channel “currently tuned into”Then, to see the actual job posts in that channel…
  • click on “Jobseeker Tools” and then “job listings”
  • These are listings on the channel for Twin Cities Sales jobs. (There are many, many more jobs not seen in this screencap.)This isn’t the only way to view jobsOnce subscribed to channel, you can view jobs multiple ways. You can log in to TMJ and look at them there. You can pull via RSS or alert via email. If you integrate TMJ account with Twitter, it will subscribe you to channels on Twitter and these jobs will show up in the list of accounts you follow on Twitter. With RSS, email, or Twitter options, you can be instantly notified when new jobs are posted.
  • That’s it for job listings.Site has 2 resume options. Can write resume for you (for a fee) or you can add a resume to the site.
  • This is the first part of the site’s built-in resume. Mostly biographical info – name, address, etc.
  • Second part of resume allows you to link to social networking sites (not required).
  • The last part of the resume asks for previous work experience – years in field, career level (entry level, manager), salary, etc.Once you complete the resume, you can tweet it in response to job posts.So that’s TMJ. Moving on to…
  • Jobtweet.meVery basic site. Searches two things: job and locationCan search in English, German, French, and Russian.
  • Search results for “administrative assistant minneapolis”Pulls tweets for results. Tweets actually link to job posting on WEB, not Twitter.Can share jobs via social media (Twitter, FB, Yahoo Buzz, etc.)That’s Jobtweet.me – pretty basic, but multilingual search is handy.
  • Goes by TwitJobSearch or TwitterJobSearchLike TMJ website, tweets jobs for vendors for a fee (KFC, Quest, etc.)Search by job and location.
  • Sample results for “administrative assistant minneapolis”Pulls all tweets for results, not just tweets they’ve posted.Offers facets (date posted, job title, salary range, location, etc.)Can upload resume/CV to site.
  • Search algorithm needs work. This was search for “administrative assistant”Also, on occasion non-job postings will show up.
  • Site also has a map mash-up. Can get to via button on left side (present on all pages of site). Map takes forever to load. So this is a site that is work a look, but not perfect.
  • TwitterJobFinderVery basic site – search by job/location only.
  • Another imperfect site. Again, tweets are used as search results.Search works well, but job postings blend in with ads. Needs design work.
  • Another shot of same screen with jobs highlighted.So that’s it for sites that pull jobs. Now we’ll talk about a couple sites that offer helpful features for Twitter-based job seekers.
  • TweetBeepWill need to sign up for account. “Like Google Alerts for Twitter.” Can set up alerts for keyword/phrase, usernames, or hashtags. Once alert is set up, it will email you daily. Job seekers could set up alerts for job postings.
  • Next up: TwellowBonus site: This is really for “active” tweeters, but couldn’t pass up.Is a public directory of Twitter accounts, like a Yellow Pages for people on Twitter.
  • Now going to talk about third-party websites that can help you find jobs on Twitter
  • Talk about 3 apps for iPhoneDidn’t neglect Android on purpose – couldn’t find any that used Twitter. Many job seeking apps out there though.
  • This is TwitJobSearch’s app. This is the app for the website we looked at earlier – the one with the sketchy search algorithm.Despite having the worst search algorithm, it’s the most robust app.
  • Search for jobs by location or title
  • Examples of search result screens: graphic designer and librarian
  • This is what the job description looks like inside the app.You might note…
  • 3 options:“QuickPitch” - allows you to tweet out your resume in response“Email me” - sends job post via email“View full job Spec” goes to full job description out on the web
  • This is what the full post looks like. It just opens up site, so may or may not be mobile-friendly.Opens up in app, which keeps “QuickPitch” option in upper right corner, in case you see what you like – click that to tweet your resume in response to their tweet.
  • Downside of app: like mentioned before when looked at their website, search feature isn’t perfect.Did search here for Bieber (not b/c I’m a fan, but b/c famous people will show how imperfect these systems are). Lots of non-job tweets. Some even non-Bieber!Can’t figure out filtering system. It filters by something because a lot of tweets don’t show up. But what it filters by….?? I don’t know. But it needs work.
  • This is the jobtweet.de / jobtweet.me appPoint out name discrepancy – de vs me
  • Like the site, can search in English, German, French or RussianApp allows 2 things - job seekers to search for jobsAnd employers to search for candidates
  • What job seeker results look likeDid search for “librarian”Results are accurate
  • You can save listings by clicking button under each postWill compile results in “Saved Results” section (button on bottom right)
  • Can also email list of search results
  • Saves your search historyHandy if you’re doing the same searches over and over.
  • Offers employer search featureExample here “librarian”Like Twellow, app searches Twitter bios
  • Test: searched for “Lady Gaga.” Only pulled “job” tweets.
  • Now we’ll look at TwittCareersNot the most robust app, but does what it does well.
  • When launched, displays most recent jobs posted on Twitter
  • Can search in English, French and Spanish
  • Example search for “Librarian”Pretty good results
  • This is what it looks like if you click a tweeted job postingIf you click the link in a tweet, it will give you the option to email the post to yourselfNo other special features
  • Test: searched for “Lady Gaga”Filters by job, jobs, #job, #jobs, career, #careers, etc.
