Tweeting for jobs…

Mashable.com recently put up a post about using Twitter to find jobs on-line.

Twitter can search for jobs, can be utilized to promote your resume, and, obviously, network with people.

An example of an employer on Twitter is Christa Foley (a.k.a @electra). She is the recruiting manager at Zappos.com, an on-line clothing and shoe store. Foley uses twitter to  show examples of negative recruiting interactions, to do outreach with high school and college students, and ultimately, to look for possible Zappos employees.

Twitter can also be used to find jobs by type, region, or company.
