Finding that Next Job

Tweet Yourself a Job

images-21I was amazed at all of the resources available on facebook, but I’m blown away by what’s available to job searchers on Twitter.

Once again, thanks to the fine folks at AskBINC for chronicling the top 15 Twitter Applications for Your Job Search. Twitter applications are coming online so fast that it’s hard to keep track of all the great uses of this amazing micro-blogging platform.  I don’t have the bandwidth to keep up with many of the latest and greatest Twitter applications, but I’m happy to note the ones that make it onto my radar screen.

The 15 job search applications noted by AskBINC range from web/tech pro recruitment apps like TweetJobSearch, to general search apps like Twellow to really cool apps that take advantage of #tags like ConnectTweet and HashDictionary.

I recently downloaded TweetDeck and it’s been a great dashboard to keep track of all of my Tweeple.  But it’s also a great job search resource as it allows you to search for certain topics and then group those topics into a feed.  If you want to search for “PR jobs” you can do it.  TweetDeck is twitterific.

Now get out there and Tweet your way to a job!

UPDATE:  The awesome folks at ResumeBear have posted 50 People on Twitter that Job Seekers Should Follow.  This is a great list.  Whoever manages social media at ResumeBear is really on the ball.  If that’s you, drop me a line, I’d like to hear from you.
