  6. 6. 5 Reasons Job Seekers Should use Twitter 1. Recruiting firms and job boards are great resources but with Twitter you can contact the employer directly 2. Twitter isn’t saturated with job seekers just yet, if used correctly it can be another resource for jobs 3. Twitter is another channel for getting in touch with the right people at the right time. 4. Create a Twitter network because if you have been ignoring this platform you can no longer afford to do so 5. Lastly go with what works – and Twitter is giving results.
  7. 7. Tweets 1. Tweet about your specialty (frequently) ―Social Media Workshop today at Gray Hair Mgmt‖ 2. Tweet about your expertise (frequently) ―Twitter Workshop Instruction at Gray Hair Mgmt‖ 3. Tweet about job search (infrequently) ―Using Twitter for Job search seeking new Marketing position‖ Chicago (Frequently means 1 a day)
  8. 8. Twitter Hash Tags ######s • Use hash tags for job searches (#)jobs • Use hash tags for company searches (#)Sears • Use hash tags for recruiters (#)HR • Use hash tags for locations (#)Chicago • Use hash tags for industries (#)Marketing
  9. 9. Twitter Hash Tags Job Search Hash tags or the # sign on Twitter is used to search ANY tweet that has the hashtag or # sign in it 1. Job Search: #Hiring Results for all tweets with the word ―hiring‖

  15. 15. Save Advanced Search results

  17. 17. Search Phrases I used search phrase: ―need web developer‖ Search of several job aggregators showed this position wasn’t listed elsewhere – at least not without a time consuming search. What does this mean to the job seeker? It means Twitter just might be the new ―underground‖ for jobs— and with growing competition, uncovering unadvertised jobs would make job search easier.
