The Twesume (Twitter Resumé)
Twesumés - good or bad?
There’s a post on Mashable that is doing the rounds about Twesumés. That’s right … Twesumé … where Twitter meets the resumé.
When I first saw the headline “How a 140-character Twitter Resumé could land your next job" I was expecting the worst, but I have to say that I agree with the idea of Twesumés.
It forces you to get to the point and say who you are and what you do in 140 characters. Plus you can add a link to your curv.me resumé to give interested employers & recruiters the full story.
If the @curvme Twitter feed is anything to go by, Recruiters are very active on Twitter so why not join them?
If you’re a graduate, a jobseeker or looking to change jobs here’s what we suggest:
- Get a coffee (or your favourite non-alcoholic beverage)
- Create a curv.me CV or Resumé (it’s free and will take about 10 minutes to complete)
- Practice writing your Twesumé (by this stage you’ll have written your Bio in your curv.me resumé so you should already be close)
- Start tweeting your Twesumé (remember to target the right people … don’t spam! and remember to link to your curv.me resumé)
