Want to Use Twitter to Job Hunt? Read This First.

Clue Wagon reader and commenter Jessica Lewis has put together a three part series on how to get started on Twitter, and it’s aimed squarely at people who are networking for jobs.  If you’ve been putting this off, or if you’re one of the people I was talking about in my post about people who join and then just sit there waiting for lightening to strike, you need to read it immediately.  I’ve had a sticky note on my monitor that said “Post about joining Twitter that isn’t stupid” for months, but I haven’t written it.  Now I don’t have to, because Jessica did a way better job than I would have.  Woo hoo!

On a completely unrelated note, you might also want to check out this post about the six fonts that piss people off.  Inexplicably, some people care a lot about what font you use on your resume, as you can see on this discussion on Ask a Manager a while back.  It’s weird, but it’s probably important to know, because you never know when you’ll encounter someone who cares.  I always recommend Ariel, because I’ve never heard anyone say they hated it, and because it doesn’t get fuzzy if if you photocopy it repeatedly (although that’s no longer a big deal, because people email it around instead of distributing copies).
