Bill Boorman, a guru in the area of social media for recruiters, conducted a webinar on Twitter basics today for NPA members. Twitter, of course, is the increasingly popular microblogging tool, and perhaps the one social media tool that seems hardest to figure out. If you’re new to Twitter, or looking for some new accounts to follow, here are ten of my favorites, in no particular order:
@BillBoorman – Bill absolutely ‘gets’ engagement and how to have great conversations on Twitter. If you’re new to social media, following Bill will help you understand how to apply best practices for engaging on Twitter.
@UndercoverRec – The Undercover Recruiter is a recruitment and career blog based in London. They Tweet great news and recruiter-focused content with a global focus.
@jaccov – Jacco Valkenburg is a recruitment trainer in The Netherlands. He shares and curates a lot of great content, even though some of it is in Dutch!
@mariah_onfiah – Mariah Gillespie is a consultant with a ton of experience with social media for recruiters. DISCLOSURE: NPA is partnering with Mariah to provide social media consulting services to our members.
@RecIndustry – Great source of a wide variety of recruiting-related news
@mobile_dave – OK, so I’m hugely interested in the “mobile revolution.” Dave Martin blogs about mobile gadgets and how the use of those gadgets is changing the way people use the Internet.
@recruitmentjob – RecruitmentJob is a recruiting blog out of The Hague that focuses on global news, tips, and advice for recruiters and HR professionals.
@JohnSumser – John is an expert on recruiting, HR, and HR technology, with a good eye for spotting trends and shifting behaviors.
@greg_savage – Greg Savage is an Australian recruiter, speaker, trainer, and all-around good guy. DISCLOSURE: NPA has hired Greg as a speaker on multiple occasions, and he will be speaking at our Global Networking Meeting in Sydney next month.
@GlblRecruiter – Global Recruiter magazine, formerly Recruitment Consultant Magazine, is a UK-based monthly publication for anyone who is serious about recruitment.
Of course, NPA occasionally Tweets about social media for recruiters at @npaworldwide. We’d love to have a conversation! What’s your favorite Twitter account? Share in the comments below!
