My clients tend to be mid-career professionals, well accustomed to e-mail and searching on Google. Their comfort level with LinkedIn varies. But when it comes to Twitter the trepidation dramatically rises. “How can Twitter fit into my job hunt?" they skeptically ask. The smart job hunter will recognize Twitter’s functionality has become a reality not only for media celebrities, but for both main stream and start-up businesses. Twitter is being used for corporate branding, marketing, and scouting for plugged-in “high value” talent to fill jobs. Corporations, HR practices, and recruiters all value access to Twitter’s 75 million users. CEO’s, HR, hiring managers, career experts and recruiters are all actively using tweeting as a part of their messaging and staffing strategies. It only makes sense job seekers hunt in the same forest as their prey!
