The use of Twitter by both job seekers and recruiters is dramatically increasing, so an effective way to be found by employers is to write a mini CV, AKA a Twitter Resume or a “Twesume” as it sometimes referred to as.

 

So, what do you need in order to create a Twitter Resume? Well not much to be honest. If you have a CV and you have a Twitter account then you are half way there!

 

Now that you’ve got the basics, here are four major elements you should include in your Twitter resume:

1. Current and desired job title

2. Desired location

3. Keywords with hashtags

4. Link to your CV, personal homepage or your social-networking profile page, such as LinkedIn. Don’t forget to use a URL shortening service to cut down the length of your link.

 

Here is an example:

John Smith: #Web Designer, experienced in #Photoshop, #HTML, #Javascript. Seeking challenging position in #London <link to LinkedIn profile> #CV

 

But don’t just put the tweet out there and then carry on as usual. Make sure you build your network by following relevant people and companies you are interested in. Encourage your followers to retweet your CV to give it added exposure. If a potential employer comes across your CV tweet and are impressed, then they will view your twitter profile. So make sure your tweets are not only appropriate for viewing by potential employers, but interesting, and industry relevant. Obviously not every single tweet you write needs to be relevant to your desired job, but it certainly helps to show a genuine interest in the industry. Tweets are a great way to express personality, and if the employer likes the sound of your tweets then you’ve made a great impression before they’ve even contacted you.
