Twitter provides a very easy and straightforward way to connect with people and develop new relationships. You can start talking with just about anyone on Twitter. Unlike most other social networks, Twitter users rarely have private profiles and you can easily initiate conversations with other users.

Start by following all the companies that you would like to work for and preferably engage with them. Don’t be afraid to ask them if they are interested in hiring – after all, the worst that could happen is they would say no or not respond at all. Keep an eye out for their tweets as well to see if they tweet about any job opportunities so that you can promptly respond.

You can also do keyword searches to see if anyone is looking to hire in your field. You’ll find that many businesses advertise their job offers on Twitter so you never know when luck might struck. You can also use a tool like TwitJobSearch where you simply enter the keywords in their search bar and see all the job opportunities that match your criteria from Twitter.

You can also make yourself more discoverable on Twitter and more appealing to potential employers by regularly posting content that relates to your desired line of work – try showcasing your own work, such as your blog posts, and  share other people’s content.
