  • Tweet about your job search

Utilize your Twitter background. There’s lots of space you can use to promote yourself. If you are a graphic artist, why not use one of your original artwork as background?

Include a link to an online CV or resume in your bio.

Establish yourself as an expert in your field on Twitter. It’s important to note that you should not misrepresent yourself. If you’re not a medical doctor, don’t play one on Twitter. As those on Twitter become interested in your content, when employers are looking at you, you’ll have more than just your resume to back up your knowledge and experience.
