I blogged a lot at #SHRM12

I soooo enjoyed myself at #SHRM12, SHRM’s National Conference in Atlanta. I tweeted more than anything else and was later surprised by that stats I generated. (Hat tip to @joelyoh) During my time at #SHRM12, I tweeted more than anyone else (369 tweets), my tweets were the most popular (retweeted 277 times) and collectively generated 5.3 million impressions. Wowzers! I guess I was more into it than I thought I was. (Smile) Below is a screenshot of the stats (click for an even better look) and here is a link to where I got it from. Just felt like sharing…



A Funny Tweet

I always feel fortunate when someone finds my tutorials entertaining and useful. On occasion, I am thanked for my efforts and rarer still, I am given an accolade that makes me burst out laughing. The tweet I received below was sent to me at a time when I really needed a good laugh. Thanks @TigerPatrick! (Here is a link to the videos I believe he was referring to.)

My Tweets were cited by Entrepreneur Magazine

I was pleasantly surprised today when I found out that my Twitter blog was cited by Entrepreneur Magazine. Wow! (If people did not tell me, I would not have known.) Lots of love to Rick Meyers for the citation and kudos to all the others on the list. And if you are not already, follow me on Twitter. (Big smile)

How to Find a Job on Twitter (Part 4)

Hat tip to Bill Fischer for inspiring this post.

There is a growing trend of jobboards posting their jobs to Twitter. If you know how they work, you can search Twitter to find out about jobs the moment they are posted online. (Pretty cool, huh?)

Here are a few examples to consider:
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=jobsurl+product+manager
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=jobsurl+%22software+engineer%22
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=jobsurl++civil+engineer

Here is another search method for finding similar jobs
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=tweetmyjobs+product+manager
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=tweetmyjobs+software+engineer
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=tweetmyjobs+civil+engineer

And one more for the road…
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=twithire+project+manager
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=twithire+software+engineer+
* http://search.twitter.com/search?q=twithire+civil+engineer

When I performed these searches, there were quite a few results. Since Twitter is a real-time search engine, the number of results you find maybe more or less (or none) of what I found. If you are dissatisfied with the results, I suggest trying again later in the day or tomorrow. Just sayin’…

Happy Hunting!
