CHAPTER 28

USING TWITTER FOR JOB LEADS,FEEDS, AND ADVICE NEEDS

“Finding my job on Twitter was pure serendipity. At the time I was working two contract jobs, both of which could have possibly turned into something full time, so I wasn’t really looking for a new job. My now-colleague Greg Swan tweeted about an opening for a junior Web developer at the PR agency where he worked. I asked for more information about the position, but wasn’t seriously considering it. A few weeks later, some circumstances changed, and I immediately thought of Greg’s tweet. I sent my resume, and now I work with a great team at Weber Shandwick.”
