New Use For Twitter! October 29, 2008

Day 13 and still looking…but things are looking up!  I had a really good conversation with Matt Rissell yesterday and an email exchange with Steve Chazin from DimDim.com AND I found an almost empty bag of candy corn in my glove box this morning – there is hope!

I have been doing my due diligence when it comes to finding a job: sending out resumes, following up, checking ALL the right (and some WAY wrong) places online to find a job but I am hoping my extra effort in the Social Media sphere will leap frog me ahead of everyone else getting laid off in this valley.

Now let me start by saying, I love LinkedIn.  I have been an advocate for a few years and love the direction they are going (just downloaded new WordPress App).  But the “recommendations” just seem to be all the same.  “X is great.  X is a hard worker.  X knows how to bla bla bla”.  And what brilliant future employer has the precious time to read all those glowing remarks about me? 🙂

How about 140 characters?  My brilliant future employer would see that my peers say what needs to be said and are to the point.  A lot of my Twitter friends I have only been face to face with them once or twice, but we all run around in the same Twitter sphere & if I was a schmuck and a fraud, they would quit following me and or call me out.

I have asked my TwitSphere to tag their recommendations #jensSearch and I have 3 so far.  What is great is that these are people I would have never gone to for a “traditional” recommendation, so I am thrilled to have them as part of the process of finding THE job.  Thanks guys! 

BTW: Any fellow Twitterererrs are more than welcome to add to the list – but be geniune! If you think I am a schmuck, say so!  🙂

@JenHarris09If you didn’t know that the words Google, MySpace, and Blog are verbs, you need to hire Jen Harris. Today. #jensSearch

Jen helped me with a client’s need to market a large commercial project. Her advice, focus, guidance, & follow-up was superb. #jensSearch

#jenssearch I can’t recommend Jen enough. She’s a go-getter and knowledgeable in social media and skilled in project management.
