Finding a job with social media: Can it be done?
Hello! I’m an east coast IT consultant looking to move to the SF Bay area.
I thought I’d try a grand experiment—could I find my next job using social media?
I think I can!
I created a new Twitter account, @SeekingSFJob, and I’ll be using it to network, share, and hopefully find my next job!
A few things I’m already noticing:
- Twitter is great for searching for jobs! Searching for the location and the job title returns tons of results!
- Using the Favorites button in Twitter is a great way to bookmark job tweets. Whether it’s a direct link to a job opportunity or a job-related article I want to read later, using favorites is a great way to follow-up on opportunities.
- Recruiters, companies, and individuals are active on Twitter and want to share with you! I’m learning a lot by searching Twitter and discovering new users to follow, like this tweet I found with a tip on improving phone interviews.
