Are you paying it forward? Twitter can help! Follow Friday (http://mashable.com/followfri/) allows people to pay it forward, giving props and a Follow Friday recommendation to individuals they follow/are followed by. It’s a great way to say, “Hey! Follow these people – they have great information to share!”
Here are some great people you should be following for job seeking advice (in addition to me and the Campus to Career blog), inspiration, and a little fun thrown in:
Laurie Ruettimann ( @lruettimann and @punkrockhr ) – Laurie is the founder of Punk Rock HR, which is now part of RecruitingBlogs. I had the chance to hear her speak at #recruitcamp last week in Raleigh, NC. Her no holds-barred personality and sheer knowledge on everything from current politics to recruiting and HR makes her a force to be reckoned with. If you have the chance to meet her, you’ll know who they had in mind when the phrase “dynamite comes in small packages” was coined!
Kendra Pearson (@KendraPearson) – I met Kendra at #recruitcamp (if you’re a recruiter or in HR, you really should check it out) as well. Kendra is another great person who shares useful information with job seekers. She’s an expert in employment branding, recruitment marketing, and interactive strategy. Her blog is NAS Talent Talk: http://bit.ly/a9D1SS
Louis Bonica (@LouBonica) – Lou participates in several of the same forums that I’m part of (#CCchat, #JobHuntChat) and always has great value to add to the conversation. He’s an open networker, helping others first. He is currently looking for a new opportunity and is well versed in technology, marketing, operations and customer satisfaction. He has my recommendation!
Lauren Sandelin (@LMSandelin) – Lauren is someone that I virtually “met” through #JobHuntChat. She provides a lot of great information, paying it forward for multiple people every day. She’s currently seeking an entry-level PR job (graduating in May from Miami of Ohio), so if you know of anything, give her a shout! Her website is www.laurensandelin.com. It has her resume, references and more. Check it out!
Erin Schreyer (@eschreyer) – Erin is a certified Leadership/Talent Management Coach, certified Strengths Trainer and great motivator. Why do I follow her and recommend that you do, too? She provides inspiration to me every day. Whether it’s a quote, or short note on leadership, Erin puts a little pep in my step. Go ahead, follow her!
Those are my Follow Friday recommendations. Please feel free to follow me and subscribe (@kbaumann – www.campustocareer.wordpress.com) for tips for jobseekers on resumes, interviewing, personal branding and development, internships and more. I’m hoping to make this blog the best place for career advice, but need your input and interaction! If you have anything to add, please feel free to contact me. Let’s work together to get the workforce back on its feet and in better shape for the future!
