Finding Jobs on Twitter and LinkedIn


Are you looking for a job? Have you tried using Twitter? How about LinkedIn?

There's a great story on CNN about someone who sent a tweet saying, "I just got laid off..." and within a very short period of time she had an offer. Amazing? We live in a world where social networking plays a huge role in career opportunities. Don't underestimate the power of online social networking tools like LinkedIn and Twitter.

I hope you'll follow me on Twitter. I currently have over 6,500 followers and I may be able to help you find a job if it relates to healthcare, medicine, public health, technology, continuing education, marketing, pharma, biotech, managed care, consulting, market research, medical writing, research, venture capital, health information technology, medical informatics, personal health records, consumer health, recruiting, healthcare administration, and more.

  1. Linkedin is really becoming a job board. Even About.com just named the top 3 job sites -

    www.linkedin.com (professional networking)
    www.indeed.com (agregated listings)
    www.realmatch.com (matches you to jobs)

    good luck to all.
