Slide deck from a presentation I delivered at the DFWTRN meeting in Dallas, TX on 4/1/09. The title of the presentation is: "TwitterTools4Recruiting."

Special thanks to Bryan Starbuck, CEO at TalentSpring, for the use of several slides from his presentation titled, "Is Twitter a Waste of Time" (

Thanks also to (Chris Hoyt) for doing it right and serving up terrific examples of how recruiters can use Twitter and Social Media to positively impact their recruiting efforts.
