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:

  1. Get a coffee (or your favourite non-alcoholic beverage)
  2. Create a curv.me CV or Resumé (it’s free and will take about 10 minutes to complete)
  3. Practice writing your Twesumé (by this stage you’ll have written your Bio in your curv.me resumé so you should already be close)
  4. Start tweeting your Twesumé (remember to target the right people … don’t spam! and remember to link to your curv.me resumé)
