Twitter’s growth and acceptance has exploded over the last year. More and more users sign up each day to update people on what they are doing and where they are going.
What I have found to be one of the most useful features of Twitter is the search function. I have been able to follow people on Twitter by searching them through the search option, using it much like Google.
In these searches, I have found many people posting links to jobs, marketing their businesses, and also sharing short insights that make you want to read the links that they also share.
If you are looking to make sense of a vast array of jobs choices out there, Twitter may be a great way for you to find that job or project you are looking for. 140 characters makes people become more succinct and clear on what they want in order to get candidates to click through and view their jobs. What’s nice as well is that it’s not just employers posting jobs; it’s people who specialize in the job search, friends helping friends who are looking for help, and people who believe in great companies sharing links that may not be easily found through a Google search or searching someone’s website directly.
