  1. Wow, great post… but also great information for employers. I’m not exactly the worlds biggest employer but have found twitter to be incredibly useful for finding exactly the right person for a particular job… This has just been through tweeting the job and asking for it to be re-tweeted…. Simple but super effective!

    • Welcome to this marvelous blog)) You wrote a very interesting post that will be certainly highly evaluated be all readers (I’m among them). Thanks a lot for it!

  2. I had not a clue that you could do that with Twitter. I knew that LinkedIn was a great social networking business professional website, whereas anyone can network with others to hopefully land a specific job with the company of their dreams. But nowadays, ppl mostly use Twitter to get $ gUaP $ from tweeting while increasing their ad revenue “$ gUaP $ means [money]” by the ways…LOL =)

  3. This is really interesting, I have heard a lot lately about how Twitter is getting used for searching for all kinds of things. Twitter search is going to be big.

  4. I live in Denmark, and although I regularly see people tweeting looking to hire people, I never knew about any of these tools. Do you know if they’re only for the USA, or if there’s a Danish version?

  6. Hey Jessy,

    That’s a great article, I never thought that we can use twitter to search jobs….. it’s fantastic. Social media is now doing everything that we need now a days.

  7. it’s about time that twitter start catching up with Facebook and Google plus, in terms of updating the look of their site, and adding additional site functions :-)

    • I actually think Twitter is great and it doesn’t need to catch up. I wish it stayed the same. I am tired of seeing the major social networks copy each others’ features!

      • I couldn’t agree with you more, on seeing social networks potentially copy the features of others, I love Google plus, as well as loving Twitter. Just gotta love them both equally :-)

The Internet is such a wonderful contribution to the world of job hunting.
