I meet with college students every week regarding their job and internship searches. Part of the discussion involves networking via social media. Most students have profiles on LinkedIn, but when I bring up Twitter, I usually get blank stares.
In over four years working in college career services, I have not personally met one student who uses Twitter professionally. I have, however, expanded my online network to include students and young professionals around the U.S. who really “get it” when it comes to Twitter as a resource for their job search and professional networking.
