How Twitter Can Help Your Career

About two years ago, we wrote an article about how you can use Twitter to your job-searching advantage by following a select group of career experts. Since Twitter was in its infancy back then, we want to expand on additional career Tweeples you should be following to get high-quality career news, information, and advice.

In no particular order, here’s my list of Twitter accounts that I follow on a regular basis for great career content: 

@Uloop - This account looks more like a classifieds ad and tweets on every college topic imaginable including jobs, internships, apartment hunting, grad schools, career fairs, and more.

@NewGradLife - A dependable resource for college grads. Everything you want to know about job hunting after college and never thought about asking during college.

@YouTern - Tweets include on-the-job advice, resume tips, internship opportunities, and personal branding techniques.

@ResumeBear - Tweets are simple and always to the point. Helps job seekers overcome obstacles in resume writing and job seeking.

@myFootpath - From high school to mid-life crisis, this account focuses on individuals starting their careers or switching careers. Keeps tweets fun and insightful.

@Workchic - Helps women dress for the business casual and casual office setting. Provides wardrobe tips for all seasons and stays on top of the latest trends.

@Careertip -A smorgasbord of career news, tips, and advice for job seekers from career coaches and recruiters around the world.

@MomsToWork - From managing your career to finding work while raising a family, this is a great outlet for all working moms.

@Intellegojobs - Tweets about recent job opportunities (all across the U.S.), job seeking tips, and employment news. 

@CornOnTheJob - Fun and personable. Tweets about latest social media trends and personal branding techniques.

@AvidCareerist - Great consistency in tweeting and a dependable source of information on job search techniques and resume tips.

@AskAManager - One of my go-to sources for tough on-the-job topics. This former hiring manager gives great advice about all aspects of the job search and she gives it to you straight.

@Heatherhuhman - This tweeter is an experienced hiring manager. She knows what she’s talking about. Tweets aimed at helping Gen Yers find internships and jobs.

You can also find us on twitter at @WetFeet_Career. We provide a useful compilation of career-related news and advice. From college and beyond, we aim to address your questions and provide you with top-notch advice.

And don’t forget about Twitter chats. I recommend the #HFChat Fridays from 12:00 to1:00 p.m. and #HBRchat Thursdays from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. for jobseekers and career experts looking to ask questions and share knowledge. If you’re interested in more options, take a look at this helpful schedule for information on different chats (topics vary) and what times they take place.
