A Student's Guide to Twitter

Twitter birdSo many social media sites exist that it can be hard to know how you should position yourself on each one.

You’re probably already using Facebook to stay in touch with friends, family and other Argosy students. Hopefully, you’ve already built a professional profile on LinkedIn. What about Twitter? As a student and a career-driven professional, how can you be using Twitter to your benefit?

It might surprise you to discover that Twitter can be a great tool for networking, building your professional reputation, and even searching for the next step in your career. Let's take a look at some of what you could (and should) be doing on Twitter.

1. Connect with industry colleagues.

Find and follow established companies and professionals in your field and possibly in your city. Pay attention to what they’re tweeting and when you see something you like or agree with, retweet it. Even better, reply with your opinion included.

Based on someone’s tweets, you can also start a conversation about a shared interest. Ask their opinion on something or recommend articles or sites you think they’ll enjoy. Connecting with someone on Twitter can be an easy way to start a professional relationship!

2. Build your professional reputation.

Start by choosing a Twitter handle that sounds professional and writing a bio that speaks to who you are and where you are in your career. Your tweets should reinforce whatever this bio says. If you say you’re a working mom, dedicated nurse and lifelong learner, that’s what you should tweet about. Find articles that talk about things like balancing your personal and professional life, the benefits of education, or new trends in nursing. Even better, give your own advice on this topic. Build credibility by showing that you’re aware of what’s going on around you and that you have something to contribute.

3. Search for Jobs.

Did you know that jobs are often posted on Twitter? Search using hashtags and keywords to find job postings in your area. Try searching #Jobs, #JobOpening, #ApplyNow, or search for a combination of those with your career field – something like #PsychologyJobs or #ITJobs. Searching “#PsychologyJobs” and “Phoenix,” for example would allow you to narrow your search even further.

In addition, if you’re interested in specific companies, many organizations have Twitter accounts dedicated to job openings. Follow these accounts to know right away whenever a job in your field opens up!
