Linked In and Twitter For Your Job Search

On Monday, November 16, from 5:30 to 6:30 Career Services and the Dick Smith Library will hold a joint presentation on using LinkedIn and Twitter to aid your job search. The presentation will be held in the Library Instruction Classroom # 139, which is on the main floor next to the Student Lounge.

LinkedIn is an online service that allows you to post your work history, connect with current and former co-workers, and to advertise your job experience to potential employers. You can recommend and be recommended by others, and build a network of contacts.

Twitter is a popular micro-blogging service where you can instantly post and receive brief updates, links, pictures and videos. You can also follow and be followed by other Twitter users, as well as building a network of online contacts.

Both services are free.

Find out more about how to wield these powerful tools in your job search by coming to the presentation on November 16. Questions? Call Career Services at (254) 968-9078.
