A day doesn't pass in the media right now without some reference to Twitter. Honestly, if that isn't an indicator that learning to 'tweet' is smart for your career, I don't know what is. When it comes to business, Twitter is here to stay folks. The professional applications of it are only just beginning to be realized. Over here at Careerealism.com - we tapped into the power of Twitter back in January, and have been obsessed with it ever since. So, if you are a college student or recent grad who is interested in social media tools and has been looking for an internship, then our summer 'twinternship' is for you! Here's why: Besides learning how to use Twitter for business, we are also going to teach you how to develop your personal brand (a.k.a. your career identity) on Twitter. Better still, we are going to show you how to network - a professional skill that most students aren't taught in school. In fact, by the time you are done, you'll be connecting with people you never even dreamed of getting to talk to - all through Twitter. Oh yes, and did I mention? All of our twinterns will be career coached through our CAREEREALISM University program as well. So, if you A) want to gain some professional credibility and get expert help with your career planning, and B) you'd like to develop some skills that I promise will be in demand in the future, then you should definitely apply. Check out the application information on the lower right side of the Careerealism.com homepage and submit yours in time. Before you know it, you could be a twintern for CAREEREALISM.com!
