“When it comes to the job search, right and wrong is a matter of opinion. What one career expert says is true, might be incorrect if you ask another. College Job Seekers need to know this when listening to experts and applying that advice to their own job search. What #JobHuntChat provides is the world’s fastest source of job search advice, from hundreds of careerists. Job Seekers can decide which advice is best for their own job search and then apply it immediately. The icing on the cake is that it’s completely free, fun, and easy to participate. Simply put, #JobHuntChat is a networking session right in the comfort of your own home!” Rich DeMatteo, February 2011
When you think about it, searching for an internship is about the same as searching for a job. From interview follow-up etiquette to what make a proper cover letter, #JobHuntChat is my number one source for job search and internship advice. #JobHuntChat is moderated by Rich DeMatteo (@CornOnTheJob), Jessica Miller-Merrill (@Blogging4Jobs), and Nicole Crimaldi (@MsCareerGirl).
What I love about this chat is how it’s always being updated. According to WTHashtag.com, #JobHuntChat averages 91 posts a day. This means that daily you have access to a diverse group of Twitter folk made up of job seekers, resume writers, recruiters, career experts and coaches, HR professionals, bloggers, college students, and their valuable opinions and insight. I do not go a day without searching the #JobHuntChat hashtag and seeing what I find. Plus, you get to submit your own questions and get professional advice! You can e-mail JobHuntChat@gmail.com as well as DM or send a tweet to @JobHuntChat. Let me remind you that this is free advice! Instead to going to a internship coach or job search coach, you have hundreds available at your fingertips!
I highly suggest that every Monday at 10PM EST you are signed in to Twitter, following one of the moderators, and are ready to learn incredibly valuable job search and internship search information. See you there!
