Using Twitter for Employability Some examples of how and why students should be using Twitter to help them get a job!
1) Employers use Twitter to advertise jobs and voluntary opportunities. http://www.howardleague.org/research-internship/ So follow any organisation you would be interested in working for!
2) University lecturers advertise scholarships and post-grad opportunities. http://www.ucl.ac.uk/scs/pg-taught So follow academics from University departments where you might be interested in further study. Seeing what they tweet about might also be helpful in an interview!!
3) Twitter keeps you up to date with developments in recruitment policy. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/01/16/mp-says-bobby-tax-willcreate-a-middle-class-police-force_n_4610576.html?utm_hp_ref=uk-news
4) Learn about an organisation’s response to key policies. And let them send you links to the original policy documents! http://www.justice.gov.uk/news/press-releases/yjb/youth-justice-boardresponse-to-the-transforming-youth-custody-announcement
5) Make sure you don’t miss the latest news/research in your area of interest. Use this knowledge to impress them in your job application! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21651502 You are so on the ball!!! http://www.cypnow.co.uk/cyp/news/1141075/antisocial-behaviour-powers-children-riskeviction?WT.rss_f=News&WT.rss_a=Antisocial+behaviour+powers+put+children+at+risk+of+eviction &utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
6)Organisations let you know when they are in the media. Tune in or catch up- even if you’re not usually a Radio 4 listener! https://www.gov.uk/government /policies/helping-troubledfamilies-turn-their-lives-around http://www.bbc.co.uk/programme s/b01pw6qd
