What is the best way to use Twitter to get noticed and to job search?

There are many ways to use Twitter for a job search. Twitter is a micro-blogging tool that allows users to post short, 140-character updates about topics of interest. You can link to others you want to get updates from by "following" them. Following organizations and people who "tweet" about topics of interest to you is an excellent way to gather information about trends that affect your job market. Following or retweeting the tweets of an organization you care about is a good way to get noticed by that organization, especially if the organization has a strong social media strategy. Showing that you follow an organization puts you ahead of others in several ways: you are aware of what the organization is currently doing, and you are added to an insider community of people who care about that organization. Some organizations even tweet their jobs, which broadcasts job opportunities to people who have already expressed interest in the organization.

Twitter also helps you get noticed by establishing your own expertise. By tweeting about things of interest to others in your field, you can gain the attention of others and gain followers, who then may consider you for jobs and/or become more aware of you. You can tweet articles, retweet others' posts, reflect on relevant current events, etc. and eventually become noticed as a thought leader in your field. Ideally, you will get "listed" on other people's lists--and by getting listed you will also get a good idea of what the world thinks of you and your brand, because you can then see who else is on the same list.

 

Tips for Transition from Private to Nonprofit Sector

In this month's article, Heather Krasna discussing transitioning between the private and nonprofit sectors.

When you are transitioning between the private and nonprofit sector, you are transitioning between cultures. There are different values and customs, as well as different terminology, dress codes, and expectations between sectors. The nonprofit sector is all about mission, all about the cause, and often all about heart, with the financial bottom line being important but ideally not the main driver of the work; while the private sector is mainly about the financial bottom line with other priorities being important but not the main focus.

 

Join us for our May webinar...
"Returning to the Nonprofit Workforce"

Have you taken some time off from work, to raise a family, to take care of an ill family member, or to travel the world? Perhaps you would like to re-enter the nonprofit sector after working in the private sector or government.

This webinar will cover everything you need to get back to work, from identifying the resources you will need to get started, how to address recruiter concerns about an employment "gap," how to write a compelling resume, and networking for success.

In honor of Mother's Day, this event will be offered on Thurs. May 5 at 9am PST/12pm EST.

As a perk of attending, you can receive 10% off our Job Search package. Space is limited-register today!
