1,300 New Followers + 10 More Experts = #1 Career Advice Tool on Twitter (Well...We Think So!)

Number 1 Image | CAREEREALISM.comWow! I'm going to be honest. I knew we could do some great things for job seekers in need of career management advice with the Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P. into CAREEREALISM), but last week's launch far exceeded even my expectations.

The response to the program has been nothing short of AMAZING!


For those of you who aren't familiar with it, here's the deal:

  • We've got top career experts tweeting career management advice to questions sent in by readers of the CAREEREALISM Twitter feed.
  • We post 3 questions each day (morning, lunchtime, end of day), Monday-Friday.
  • Each questions gets a tag (assigned a number) that enables followers to easily search on twitter to look at all the answers provided by the career experts for a particular question.
  • All the questions are listed over at CAREEREALISM.com with instructions on how to access the answers so that newcomers can easily go back and access past advice.
