I'm delighted to announce that theTwitter Job Search Guide rolled off the presses on March 1, and is now available through Amazon, book stores, and other news outlets.
On Monday, March 15, at 6:00 pm, my co-author Deb Dib and I will host a formal launch for the book at El Rio Grande (38th and 3rd) in Manhattan. New York's original "Gossip Girl" Liz Smith recommends that you stop by, and we'd love to see you. Come as you are!
Deb, Susan Whitcomb, and I wrote this book for job seekers, and our launch party is no exception: the event is designed to facilitate networking for job seekers and provide "tweet tips" for attendees.
If you're not on Twitter yet--or have no intention of using Twitter to find a job--that's okay. But consider these stats:
- Over 500,000 jobs are posted through TweetMyJobs a month. Through TweetMyJobs, you can specify your job interests and location preferences and have results sent directly to your cell phone.
- As posting jobs on Twitter is very low cost for employers in comparison with other job boards and posting services, an increasing number of employers are "tweeting" jobs. In addition, many recruiters and hiring managers maintain an active presence on Twitter to build relationships and scout for new talent.
- Indeed.com, one of my favorite aggregators and job boards, named Twitter the #1 fastest-growing opportunity for employment in 2009.
Check out the book and thanks for your support!
To your success,
