Bay Area Recruiters Use Twitter

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

If you're looking for a job, recruiters say you should work on your online presence. Joshua Loudermilk, is a social media expert with Kforce, a staffing firm. He helps his clients, employers connect with potential employees through Twitter.

"Social media is the water cooler of today," Loudermilk said.

He posts jobs everyday from a Kforce account. Loudermilk says Twitter will give you an edge over the competition.

"You think about a lot of the clients we deal with," Loudermilk said. "They're flooded with resumes of people they don't know. That's how we used to do it. How we do it now is you start that conversation through twitter before you send it so they have a positive impression of who you are before they see that resume."

According to Loudermilk employers want to see your personality. But he warns you should always keep it professional. For more tips on finding a job through Twitter check out the Kforce blog.
