    Wow, I think this was a really great thing for an organization to do! The job market is always changing and having help deciphering what is the best way to find information regarding positions or even finding available positions is a big help. I think an even better aspect is learning how to use social media to your advantage and promote yourself to organizations and buisnesses.

    Good to know! Finding a job is all about who you know, if you’ve already got all the credentials. But even without, a lot of people would argue that it’s all in who you know. With that said, you get to know people through networking. Twitter and Social Media (and even face-to-face) are all great ways to network and get known. I have to remind myself about this all the time. Thanks for sharing!
