I’m happy to announce that #JobHuntChat is coming to Twitter!  The first, and quite possibly only Twitter chat focusing on the job search will launch its first chat on Monday, February, 15th at 10PM EST.

I’ve been excited planning this chat, but now that the idea has come to life, the rest is up to you.  #JobHuntChat will take your suggestions for questions every week, and the other co-moderators (who I will get to in a second) and myself will pick out four questions to be featured each Monday night.  So, who are the Co-moderators for #JobHuntChat?

Co-Moderators

Submitting Questions

Submitting your ideas for topics and questions is easy.  Just reach out to us in one of the following ways:

  • Send an e-mail to JobHuntChat AT Gmail.com
  • DM or send an @ mention to @JobHuntChat on twitter
  • DM or send an @ mention to any of the Co-moderators listed above
  • Comment on this post

We will reach out to people for specific questions during the week, and at times have themed chats planned where questions will be even more specific.  We want to hear from you, so don’t hold back.

When is #JobHuntChat?

Chats will be every Monday, from 10PM EST to 11PM EST.  Our first chat is on February 15th

Who will participate?

This is the fun part!  I have absolutely no idea.  As you know, Twitter is a big place, and its only getting bigger.  Your questions will be responded to by other job seekers, bloggers, resume writers, career experts, HR professionals, recruiters, or maybe even @ShitMyDadSays.  We want to hear everyones opinion on the topics discussed, and Twitter allows us to do just that.

How can you participate?

For starters, send us your questions!  This is for you.  On Mondays, be on Twitter at 10PM EST, and make sure to follow each of the co-moderators.  We will be tweeting out the questions, and RT’ing the smart responses that we get.  We are looking forward to seeing how this baby forms, and your suggestions, comments, and questions will drive the success of this chat.

#JobHuntChat is here!  Never Hunt Alone Again!

Excellent idea Rich, and I'm glad it's after our show Compassionate HR at 7:30-8 and The ExRecruiter show 8-9 I wish you the very best, and if I'm not too tired after hosting my show with Shenne, I'll definitely chime in, and offer support. Bill's idea to create a twub is a good one. I like Jessica so much, you've got a great crew. Your twitter pal, @HRMargo http://hrmargo.com http://blogtalkradio.com/comphr

Thanks, Margo. If you are too tired, don't worry about it! Jessica and Nicole will be great co-moderators. Looking forward to seeing the responses to our 4 questions we ask every week.

Great idea Mr.Corn. It might help you to set up a twub for the conversation. you can register at http://www.twubs.com this way you can save the conversation at any time and not get lost in the genral stream for those that want to follow. you can also drop in videos, links to resources and blogs. You could probably also export the twub to your blog. Bill
