Join Beyond B-School for this free webinar for MBA career services professionals.
Now with Twitter, your MBAs can gain access to hiring managers and target companies as never before. They can feel in control of their job search, as they proactively “tweet” to shine a light on their skills and network with key contacts in real time.
Learn techniques to help your students become Twitter-savvy to enhance the effectiveness of their job search. As an MBA career coach, you will have a step-by-step how-to guide that you'll find easy to relay to your students.
Learn how to help your MBAs:
-Create compelling BIOs, and use profile & cover photos that represent themselves positively
- Interact appropriately and have a structure that they can use to find jobs in just 10-15 minutes each day
Find people to follow at their targeted companies, stay organized, and gain trust and recognition
- Use third-party applications that can be used to find jobs on Twitter and that can showcase their skills in more than 140 characters
