Are you using Twitter to listen for jobs?

For some of the folks hunting for a job these days the idea of getting a twitter account is something that makes them just want to puke. My advice....get over it! There are some very powerful tactics you can use on twitter to help you with your job search.

Twitter search can be a major resource in your job search and it is really easy. Just follow these easy steps:

Step 1: Establish a twitter account if you don't have one.

Step 2: Go to and search for your keywords.
