So -- you're looking for work -- emailing your resume to perspective employers that is something 2005.
Twitter is the new trend in job hunting today.
-- to post your resume in just a 140 characters but it's really like the new elevator pitch and there are some interest aspects.
That could put you in a much better position.
That anyone trying the old fashioned way.
Joining me now as Catherine issue founder and CEO bemused and Chris -- founder and CEO of -- media group thanks to both of you for joining us.
-- so what do you actually hired someone based on their Twitter -- absolutely our director of marketing Sonny's taken an event he reached out and said I found what you had to say very compelling love the company here's a link to my social media profile those.
If you're looking for someone in marketing -- love to talk more.
And I was really impressed and so we -- from interviewing higher than a month later.
Sounds great -- like to target how to actually do it Chris one that and one of the tips mention was -- -- or conversing.
We gave me -- -- jurors are CEOs -- HR people -- -- company that you wanna work for how do you do that affected.
Definitely at one of the things you can do is start pinpointing where you wanna work what agencies you wanna -- that and then finding their hash tags and finding they are Twitter handouts.
And then actually following them re tweeting relevant contents using hash tags in the industry you wanna -- -- So that you appear in their news feed every time that they're looking at their -- they start to recognize who you are.
And the reason that's important is because when you do you send your resume in a few months later they'll recognize your name.
So -- what would you do to get recognized and -- kind of a setting and can you go to.
Park absolutely I think there's a lot of do's and don'ts at a basic level you want to make sure that your profile is representing yourself in a positive way.
So look at the picture that you're using is -- professional as a positive here to bio -- it's short it's actually great way to say this is who I am.

And on Twitter as as says Chris was saying it's fantastic way to develop a personality to engage someone I think you have to be careful not to cross the line right into into harassment and I always tell people a lot of its common sense if you wouldn't call someone four times and when they don't return your call very public shouldn't kind of treated someone repeatedly.
They haven't answered you know.
Maybe take a break for a little bit -- but that -- it's a great way to just make sure that you know that they know that you're interested and to stand out in a sea of applicants -- It strikes me that there are a lot of industries that this would not work for me when I think about hedge funds for example who are pretty secretive and low profile -- -- they.
Heat it when they have employees that are on.
Social media that are on -- but better to be there are a lot of things this wouldn't work for right yeah I think.
It's really cared -- towards people who are interested in working in the communications industry that did that bank that's -- a big group of people well.
I think that would be the primary audience they think in terms of you know the SEC and and rapper -- financial regulations I think they're very strict and I don't think you know for hedge funds this would be the right avenue.
OK so I it's hard to -- -- -- a 140 characters or last I gave it a shot.

You look at at a following him and the more followers you have the better there I mean that's really important that how often do you do it -- -- -- the desperate.
I think finding the right context is important for example if you were part of an industry chat.
I've there was you -- Twitter chat you can this whole episode well and we can search for Twitter -- related to your industry you can go to one of those shots -- introduce yourself on the way and then participate in it I -- Biggest mistake here that I see is that you know you could write a perfect resonates week.
But what happens before and after that it's not OK to resume between that's -- -- end but what goes around it so you don't wanna have a really -- resonate tweet and then -- and things here Twitter -- that's an employer's gonna say was this written by the same person rape -- you -- and your Twitter -- that I look back at history you sense and he really -- and that's -- -- I -- I thinks about the --
