1. Stay Focused on Your Job Search and Your
Don't start or engage in conversations not related
to your job search. No one really needs to know
what you had for breakfast or what movie you saw
Keep the majority of your tweets relevant to your
personal brand, industry, areas of expertise, and
value to your target companies. That doesn't mean
you can't tweet off-topics and humorous tidbits,
when you have extra time.
2. Do a Lot of Retweeting
Simply the act of tweeting again a tweet that
someone else has tweeted, retweeting (abbreviated as
"RT") is one of my favorite ways to use Twitter and
one of the best ways to save time there.
Even if you do nothing else on Twitter, posting
relevant retweets can be a powerful way to build
brand evangelism, a quality Twitter following, and
get on the radar and stay top-of-mind with people
you want to notice you.
First, gather up a long list of the right people to
retweet. Who are these people? Colleagues, industry
thought leaders and subject matter experts, top-level
executives (or hiring decision makers) at your target
companies, and executive recruiters in your niche, to
name a few.
Search for them on Twitter, follow them, and start
retweeting them. It's as easy as that!
It's critical to include in your retweet the @user-
name of the person who originated the tweet,
because they'll see the retweet on their "Notifica-
tions" page. Chances are you'll get noticed, if enough
of your retweets show up there for each person
you're retweeting. If a good retweet doesn't mention
the original author, take the time to track them
down and include their @username.
Retweeting Strategies to Help You Get Noticed
While retweeting is very effective for sharing good
information and gaining attention, it needs to be
done carefully or it won't be as effective as it could
be:Don't automatically retweet something containing
a link without first checking it, to make sure it's not
a bad link and doesn't lead somewhere you don't
really want to send people.
Structure your original tweets so that they're short
enough to allow for more than one retweet by oth-
ers, without alteration.
Take the time to tweet a thank you to people who
RT you, even if you're not the tweet originator.
It's always nice to include your own brief support-
ive comment with a re-tweet that's especially good --
something like "Great advice!" or "Excellent!"
Don't change the wording of the original tweet,
except to abbreviate for space. But use abbreviations
sparingly. A jumble of single letters and numbers can
be confounding and doesn't give a professional
If you're not already following someone you want
to retweet, coincide retweeting with following them.
They may notice your @username showing up twice
on the "Notifications" page in that short span.
Retweet using the retweet button that sits under
each tweet and on many websites at the top or bot-
tom of an article or blog post make retweeting easy.
But sometimes these retweets don't include the
@username. Take a few moments to add it in if it's
not already there.
Use hashtags in your RTs when you can. The
hashtag symbol ("#") is used before a word or phrase
(with no spaces) to mark relevant keywords and top-
ics in tweets. It was created organically by Twitter
users as a way to categorize messages. Clicking on a
hashtagged word in a tweet shows you all other
tweets marked with that keyword.
3. Organize Your Twitter Strategy
Use Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, or another Twitter app
to help you organize your time, the people you fol-
low, the people you want to retweet frequently, and
to set up retweets in advance.
Do your thank you's for retweets, #FollowFridays
(#FF), and other mentions all in communal tweets,
every few days. No need to thank each person in a
Consult the Twitter Help pages for specifics on
using re-tweets, hashtags, and other things.
Chances are, most recruiters and many employees
at your target companies are active on Twitter, post-
ing job openings and information related to the jobs
you want. Isn't it worth carving out a little time
each week to spread the word on Twitter about your
personal brand and value to your target employers?
If these clients would tap into the research they've done on the compa-
nies they're targeting, they could reap plenty of benefits from Twitter in
just 10 to 15 minutes, a few days a week, especially because the majority of
job seekers aren't doing anything with Twitter.
