Tweet Your Way to a New Career

Twitter Career Center: Do you need a new job? Want to change careers? Well, then, you better be on Twitter. According to this article from Yahoo News, Twitter, more than Facebook (where people tend to interact with people they already know in real life), is an incredibly valuable resource when it comes to changing careers because it lets you broadcast your expertise and build up a large following within whatever industry you are aiming to move into. Because Twitter isn’t as personal as FB and because it’s more about broadcasting to large audiences rather than to networks of family and friends, Twitter lends itself to building one’s own personal brand (ew, I know I hate that phrase). For example, it’s easy to find top execs and industry leaders whom you’ve never met and follow them without being creepy, and hopefully they will eventually follow you back.
