Twitter Your Way to A Job with Susan Whitcomb

Our Career Speaker Series on Wednesday, May 7th, features Susan Whitcomb.  Susan is the author of numerous books including, The Twitter Job Search Guide,  and 30-Day JOB PROMOTION.  Only 10 years ago, all you needed to look for a job was a phone, classified ads, and a personal network.  Today, you need to have an online presence that includes a complete LinkedIn profile, Facebook page, blog, and knowledge about how to use Twitter for fast breaking, niche job opportunities.  You've heard the old adage, "The early bird gets the worm!"  No pun intended, but with Twitter, you have a chance to find jobs before they reach the mainstream.  You have a chance to find an inside champion who can get your resume not only on the desk of the hiring manager, but firmly planted in his/her mind, before he/she starts the formal job search.  Susan will show you tips, tricks and strategies that will help you not only develop your online presence, but prepare you to find the job you want, faster with less effort!
