© ASocialMediaChampion4U Tweet Your Way to a New Job - Or Not? However, there is a danger in thinking that all you need to do is go online and tweet yourself to a new job. There is no quick and easy way for most of us to find a job. For most job seekers, you need a multi-tiered approach to job searching. It takes time to build an online presence. Don't expect to be able to have a strong online presence overnight. Instead, take it one step at a time and spend some time on the networking sites, as well as time conducting a traditional job search. - Alison Doyle (http://jobsearch.about.com/)
