It’s so easy, even my mom has done it.
I’ve been practicing for the dizzy bat spin competition and plan on bringing home the gold. Tell your friends so we can raise as much money as possible for this great cause!
The other day, I rt’d an HBR article called, “How to Curate Your Own Personal Job Feed“. The most helpful part of that article is about how to leverage Twitter as another channel for finding job postings:
The most effective way to use Twitter for your job search is to keep your job search-related activity separate from your other Twitter activity, such as following the tweets of your friends or breaking news tweets.
First, create a list called “Jobs” on your Twitter.com profile page (you can opt for your list to be private so only you can access it) or by using a third party application such as Tweetdeck.com or Hootsuite.com. Once you’ve set this up, go to Twitter’s Advanced Search to find the kinds of job postings you’re looking for based on keywords, location, and other factors. Doing a sample search on “online marketing jobs Atlanta,” for instance, I came across over twenty positions tweeted out in the past week. Each tweet includes a link to find the full job listing on a website, which is another good way to discover niche sites in your industry.
Next, scan down the list of tweets that show up in your results and “follow” the Twitter feeds that provide the best job postings. In the above example, I found LinkedIn Jobs, Atlanta Jobs, and MBA Highway, among others, so if I were looking for an online marketing job in Atlanta I would start following those Twitter feeds.
Bookmark your “Jobs” list on Twitter and the page of your Advanced Twitter Search. Visit both of these bookmarks every day and continue to click “follow” on the Twitter feeds that post the best jobs for you.
I mostly use indeed and sometimes linkedin to look for jobs. Thus far I’ve come across some hits using the twitter method described above that I haven’t using my preferred search methods. So yay!
