Twitter is a virus.  Twitter is infectious.  Twitter is spreading.


Since Twitter arrived on the scene it appears more and more people have forgot about MySpace.  Who really uses MySpace anymore?  If Facebook and MySpace were considered the #1 and #2 social media websites, you can now consider Twitter #2 and MySpace #gone.  Twitter is here to stay, and I suggest you create your account if you haven’t done so already.

There are a number of reasons why job seekers should be utilizing Twitter. is one.

Twtjobs allows users to either post a resume or a job opening.  I’ll discuss with you the features of the resume posting function.  It’s rather simple, and very quick to create considering the section where you actually write out your resume can only be 140 characters.  Maybe not easy for everyone to do, but if you can scale your resume down and just include the most important words, phrases, and accomplishments than you will have an effective resume on Twitter.  The following are sections you’ll need to fill out on twtjobs:

  • Twitter Name
  • Headline
  • Twitter Resume – If your resume had to be 140 characters long, what would it say?
  • Skill Tags
  • LinkedIn Profile – Genius, twtjobs will push people over to your longer, more detailed profile on LinkedIn if you’ve done a nice job with your Twitter resume
  • Industy
  • Education Level
  • Experience Level
  • Lastly, you’ll see two boxes that can be checked off.  The first is “Display on search results” and is already checked for you.  You can decide to uncheck of course if you are not ready to display the resume in results.  The second is “Currently employed”, and you’ll see this is unchecked.

Done.  Finished.  Time to watch Oprah, Springer, or Family Guy.
