One of the first companies I followed was LL Bean and I was pulled into Twitter because of their great customer service! When I wrote to them about not being able to make a race they were having, I got a Tweet right back! Now that’s reaching out to your customers and using social media to your advantage! Good job LL Bean!
I came across an article on Newsweek titled Tweet Your Way to a Better Job and felt inclined to try out this method, or at least add it to my networking repertoire. I’ve decided to look into some of the companies I’ve applied to and see if they are on Twitter. Seeing as I’ve exhausted all of my free “introductions” on LinkedIn, why not use Twitter as an introduction?!?
Why not throw parts of your resume into your Twitter message, if you are using it to network and land your next job? Mention that you are a marketing professional, a product marketer or are fashion or sports minded. Then ReTweet a message from a company you have an interest in and mention a similar topic you may have come across.
Good luck and let me know how this medium works out for you!
