Class Description: LinkedIn is the most important place for a jobseeker to start their job search, right? WRONG!
While LinkedIn grabs the lion's share of the headlines, savvy executives know that networking is the single most effective way to secure a great career move…. and Twitter beats LinkedIn hands down both for networking with recruiting decision-makers and for sparking career move conversations.
The great irony is that LinkedIn is the place where recruiters go to research the market, draw up candidate shortlists and approach potential hires directly. It's the place where recruiters may find you – hence its importance. But it's far less effective for you to try and network your way into a new job.
The beauty of Twitter is that you can choose who you want to strike up relationships with. Target companies can be researched and approached. Your efforts can be focused on contacts who are active users, meaning you start seeing results in a matter of days rather than weeks or months. In short, you can be proactive and make things happen.
This class will show you step-by-step exactly how to go about building a network on Twitter that is oriented toward furthering your career or securing a career move. It will teach you how to engage business people and influencers in your niche. You'll learn how to do this in the most time efficient ways possible, leveraging the many tools available and learning exactly what works to achieve results in the shortest possible time.T
This class is intended for anyone wanting to use Twitter as a powerful tool to further their career, either as part of an active job search or as a longer term strategy to further your career. Prior Twitter experience is not required, but seasoned Twitter users will certainly also learn a wealth of new tactics they can put to use.
In this 90 minute class you will learn to:
- Develop your Twitter account to become a magnet for recruiters and decision makers in your sector
- Utilize free and low-cost tools to achieve significant results with a modest investment of time
- Target active twitter users in your sector to maximise your networking effectiveness and longer term to increase the reach and appeal of your twitter account
- Research and approach decision-makers on Twitter
- Gain insights into how these approaches can complement your presence on LinkedIn, Facebook or Google+
