Use Twitter For Job Searching and Finding Deals

Two Savvy Ways to Use Twitter

Twitter (as with any social networking site) can get you into trouble with a prospective employer if you play your cards poorly, but it can also be a great tool for making headway on your job search or finding online deals for brands you like.

  • Twitter as a Job Resource: Mashable recommends three main points for making your presence appealing to employers: "Put your job pitch in your Twitter bio (which is 160 characters); use a professional looking avatar; Tweet about your job search." You can even sign up to receive mobile alerts for jobs in your fields of interest.
  • Twitter as a Deal Finder: Various brands have started to offer deals via their Twitter presence, so if you're keen on particular brands or stores, search for them on the microblogging site to start receiving alerts. If you're more interested in deals in general, sites like Coupon Tweet round up the most popular coupons posted on Twitter for your perusing.
