Best Job Search Resources on Twitter

by Alicia Smyth

Twitter has helped to make celebrities and political figures more accessible, so it makes sense that the micro-blogging site can also make companies, recruiters, and career development professionals easier to reach as well. Twitter also serves as a great resource for keeping you up to date on news and current trends in the industry, which is very useful in helping you to prepare for a career fair or job interview. Some companies and recruiters even post jobs on Twitter.

Below, you will find a list of recommended people/companies to follow if you are searching for a job in the aviation/aerospace industries. Think of this as a macro-blog #FF (twit speak for “it’s Friday, so here is a long list of tweeters we recommend that you follow”).
