With all the noise and clutter in social media today, how do you know where to go for really good career advice? Who will help – really help – you find your first, or next, internship or job?
Once again, YouTern helps answer those questions with the 2015 version of our “Top Twitter Accounts Job Seekers MUST Follow” – our 5th annual list of the best career experts, recruiting professionals and mentors in the business!
As we do every year when we make this list, our focus is on quality over quantity; engagement over broadcasting; and value over self-promotion. Every person or organization on this list has shown true character – and a willingness to help young careerists excel. Many on this list have become friends, collaborators and partners… and we’re quite proud of that.
