6 ways to tap social media to find a job
Join in on chats on Twitter and LinkedIn
Job seekers will want to participate in certain industry groups and chats that recruiters are following. "Recruiters want to hang out where the candidates are hanging out," Tolstoi-Miller says.
You can search for professional groups on LinkedIn through the group directory. You have to do some searching to uncover Twitter chats, says Twitter editorial director Karen Wickre.
Also, Finnigan suggests searching for the websites of professional associations and groups in your field. Different professions and industries will have their own sites where those active in the field will be chatting and exchanging ideas, and recruiters will look at those specialized sites when they are searching for talent in that field.
