4 Twitter Chats Every Job Seeker Should Know

Posted January 25, 2012

Twitter chats for job seekers Don’t know what Twitter Chats are? Your life is about to change. Career experts actually host weekly live Q&A’s with professionals, hiring managers, career experts job seekers and others.

It’s an awesome way to gain a little visibility, interact with the career scene and expand your Twitter network with some people that will actually respond to your tweets. Oh, and maybe learn a thing or two about effective job searching!

The way it works is for about an hour at a given time, one moderator asks a question preceded by “Q1” (aka Question 1) anyone is free to respond to that question by starting a tweet with “A1.”

Over the course of one hour, the community covers 2 to 3 questions.  It’s all in real-time using hashtags (#). Try observing one to learn about the etiquette and flow of conversation. Check out Tweetchat.com to make the live conversation easier to follow.

And ... drumroll please … Here are four useful Twitter chats you should join in:

1. #CareerChat – Moderated by @MyPath_MP and @Bizmebizgal. (We participate religiously!) Tune in Tuesdays 12 PM EST.

2. #LinkedInChat – Moderated by @LinkedInExpert and @SteveCassady. Tune in Tuesdays 8 PM EST.
