Twitter: Networking & Professionalism

After making use of Twitter for the last few years just for a social purpose, just like most people my age, I figured it was time for a change. For those that are trying to get a job, or are back on the job market for the first time in a while, they will find this guide quite helpful on how to make better use of Twitter and possibly use it to land your next job.



Twitter is also an excellent way to network online and it can be done by following recruiters (specifically for students, campus recruiters are best), companies of interest and other twitter members who are working/recruiting in your field of interest. By doing so you have given yourself the option of being followed back by these individuals, and provided yourself with a closer link to the company (able to see current openings, job postings, as well as interesting and often helpful career related articles). 


Before you begin networking on Twitter it’s best to clean up your twitter a bit, fortunately it’s a lot easier than cleaning up your Facebook since you probably have a lot less photo’s and personal information. After reading a blog post by Lauren K. Gray I have learned a few tips and thought I would pass them a long to you. 

When it comes to tweeting “keep it 80% professional and 20% personal”


If you are actively searching for a job, make sure to not tweet about any of the following;

  • Wanting to work for x and x companies
  • Topics around the subject of sleeping naked in your bed
  • Being trashed every weekend
  • Posting pictures to twitpic of rowdy weekends
  • Every single tweet about what your cat is doing
  • Direct insult tweets – do NOT start an online fight
  • Anything to do with #teamfollowback – it’s annoying
  • Depressing tweets over and over
  • What you are doing every single minute of the day
  • Tweets just to be tweeting
And then most importantly “When in doubt, don’t tweet it out”
