It’s Friday and I thought I would try something new. For those of you on Twitter, I’m sure you’re familiar with the #FollowFriday concept. This is how you recognize friends, authors, industry leaders, and others, with a Twitter @mention on Friday, as a way to thank them for sharing valuable content and to recommend their work. (a sort of “pay-it-forward”)
Today, I’m highlighting industry leaders who have been great resources for me, and have provided timely social media tips for creating a successful job search strategy. Whether you are new to social networking, personal branding, actively looking for a job, or seeking a career change, I’m sure you will find, as I did, that these leaders provide a great service to all their followers by researching and sharing the latest tools, tips, late-breaking news, and industry trends.
