  • Include a Picture! Don’t Be Shy: Although you are job searching, this is also a social networking site. Besides, no matter what hang-ups you have about your looks — interviews are still face-to-face! Professionally branded picture, please. Assuming you have a similar professional photo on your LinkedIn profile, make your life easier and utilize the same professionally branded picture here on Twitterville.
  • Express your personalityKeep it professionalUse searchable languageCreate a branded “One Line Bio” and make it recruiter-friendly. Recruiters use search when looking for potential employees so think like them when crafting your bio. Aside from the link to your resume mentioned above, make your location familiar by using the name of the metropolitan area where you are looking for work and make sure you use often-searched-in-resume-database terms such as credentials, job title and industry.
  • Don’t Protect Your Tweets: How will others determine if you are tweeting interesting and vital information? Are you asking us to follow you before we even know what you are tweeting about? Besides, what are you hiding?Be Selective with Your Tweet Topics: Remember that every tweet you compose becomes a Google page and will remain in cyberspace forever, so don’t talk about things that will come back to ruin your reputation or employability.

  • Be sure your LinkedIn profile is an up-to-date and accurate reflection of you.  It should be less complex than a résumé, but still offer a substantial amount of information regarding your strengths and capabilities. Make sure there is a good photo of you as well.
