When it comes to finding a job things have become much tougher, as there seems to be more of us going for the same job. However, life has become easier for some who embrace social networking and said that they can find a job on Twitter. Like all things there are pitfalls into this, and the golden rule to remember is to not look for a new career move during company time.

We all know how an employer hate you using company time for anything social, so looking for a job will not go well when you ask them for a reference with your new company. With that out of the way you should go home from work and use Twitter to its full potential – not just for seeing what the latest celeb is up to.

There are a number of ways to use the micro-blogging website to look for work, one-way is TwitJobSearch. Once on the website you will see a familiar search bar tool, all you need to do is type in the kind of job that you are looking for. The results are instant and you get a short description of the posting; clicking on more will give you extra information.

This is certainly an easy way to find a new job, yes there are other services out there like this but TwitJobSearch allows you to contact the company direct via Twitter. This service has not been around for long, so there is certainly time for growth.

For those of you out there who love everything about Twitter, then maybe you should consider a job with them. Currently there are a number of positions in eight different fields; this comes as no surprise because they are a growing company. For more details visit Twitter/Jobs.
