Did you know that the vast majority of executive recruiters use social recruiting (including Twitter) to source and assess top talent?
And that many employers tweet about their new product and service launches (great for researching your target companies and industry), other business news, and job opportunities?
So, are you ready to start using Twitter to accelerate your executive job search and build your personal brand?
Career Directors International (CDI), a global careers industry professional association, has compiled a book to help you:
Supercharge Your Job Search
Download the Twitter ebook for FREE, or purchase the hard copy for $12.95.
Part of a member publicity opportunity, CDI tweeted eight job search tips a day, Monday through Friday on the hour, for nine months earlier this year. The tweets from 49 global experts were then compiled into this 76-page ebook.
The contributors include award-winning, certified career coaches and master resume writers.
Because each tip is formatted as a tweet of no more than the allowed 140 characters, you get easily digestible, ‘byte-sized’ strategies and resources you can immediately use to guide your successful job search.
Topics include best practices to:
- Focus Your Job Search
- Target Organizations, Industries, and Individuals
- Network to Find Jobs
- Use Job Boards and Website Job Centers
- Attend Career Fairs
- Source with Recruiters and Employers
- Find Temporary to Permanent Hiring
- Benefit from Want Ads
- Perform Company Walk-Ins
