1. Choose Your Twitter Account Name

Keep it professional, career, or industry relevant.

2. Include A Picture! Don't Be Shy

Although you are job searching, this is also a social networking site. Besides, no matter what hang-ups you have about your looks - interviews are still face-to-face!

3. Don't Protect Your Tweets

How will others determine if you are tweeting interesting and vital information? Are you asking us to follow you before we even know what you are tweeting about? Besides, what are you hiding?

4. Be Selective With Your Tweet Topics

Remember that every tweet you compose becomes a Google page and will remain in cyberspace forever, so don't talk about things that will come back to ruin your reputation or employability.

5. Create A Personal Account

Keep your Twitter account for job searching professionally branded. If you want to connect with friends and discuss more personal topics, create a personal account and tweet whatever you want but use a nickname or pseudo name for that account. You want your professional account to be the one to show up in Google when someone searches your name! Right? Remember your online profile and social media accounts represent your digital image.
