There is an easy, free — and fun — way to get free career advice (and much more) from some of the best career advisers in the country. It’s all happening on Twitter.
Willy Franzen, of One Day, One Job and Found Your Career, has put together an excellent list of “50 Twitter Users to Follow for Your Job Search.” I’m honored to be on the list and happy to see many of my favorite career bloggers, authors and speakers on the list as well. (If you’d like to follow me — and please do! — I’m @lindseypollak.)
All of the people on this list use their Twitter feeds to share career advice articles, job search tips, real job and internship opportunities, event announcements and much more. If you’re not on Twitter, you’re missing out on a tremendous amount of free and valuable information. (Yes, you’re also missing out on silly photos, descriptions of what people are eating for lunch and a fair amount of procrastination, but it’s easy to find the valuable content on Twitter. The rest makes it really fun.)
I’d also like to add a few additional Twitterers that I recommend, although I’m sure I’m forgetting a bunch — will add in the comments when I remember.
Guy Kawasaki (@guykawasaki) – one of the most popular Tweeters, who often posts links to articles on making the best use of Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media
