Career Advice now on Twitter!

March 2, 2009 at 7:13 pm 3 comments

I have been following the CAREEREALISM blog, and have found it to be VERY beneficial and insightful- as they offer career advice that is “refreshingly, real advice”… and the best part, it pertains to college students! Given the state of the economy, we “newbies” who are about to enter the working world could all benefit from some advice that might make this transition easier… or even possible!

CAREEREALISM wants to put an end to the hours of wasted time people spend researching career related advice (which ends in frustration, due to search results that are not related to your question at all).

Realizing the power of Twitter, they have decided to solve this problem, by creating the Twitter Advice Project- check out T.A.P. into CAREEREALISM for a full description of the project. Job seekers and career experts follow CAREEREALISM on Twitter. This project allows users to send career related questions via email, they post your question on Twitter, and wa-laa… you start to receive posts from career experts with direct advice that makes sense to you. They’re goal is to provide “refreshingly, real advice”- which they do well!

So, check out the CAREERALSM blog, follow them on Twitter… and begin to post questions to receive applicable, real advice!

    Thanks so much Sally for spreading the word about our Twitter Advice Project. The experts participating are truly wonderful and I guarantee anyone who submits a question will feel more informed by them! I still can’t believe they all agreed to donate their time like this. Better still, we’ve been bombarded with requests from other experts and are going to be selecting some more to contribute soon. It feels great to know that people are willing to help like this!

    I’m a part of the TAP team, and I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m really enjoying the process. We are helping others, and those people can steer more people toward the TAP program, enabling us to help even more people. All we get out of it is the satisfaction of a job well done. All you have to do is submit a career question to and they’ll get to it as soon as they can.

    Keep up the good work, Sally! 🙂
