14 Twitter Feeds for Job Seekers to Follow

kiersten bryantNeed career or job hunting advice? Looking for a new job? Make social media work for you and use Twitter!  There are a lot of people out there that are full of professional advice that use Twitter to share it with the masses. Twitter is also a great resource for finding out about job openings when they first become available, and sometimes they are posted on Twitter before they are listed anywhere else.  Twitter is one of the resources that I use to find jobs for the California Jobs page.

 

Follow these Twitter feeds for current LIS-related job postings:

Academic Library Jobs – @AcadLibJobs

Code4lib – ‏@code4lib

ALA Job List Library Jobs – @ALA_JobLIST

Special Libraries Association – @SLAhq

Lib Gig Library Jobs – @libgig_jobs

LAC Group Jobs – @LAC_Jobs

Archives Gig – @ArchivesGig

Get  Archivist Jobs  – @GetArchivisJobs

For job announcements that are not library and information science focused, but still might be of interest to LIS professionals, follow:

National Public Radio Jobs – @NPRjobs

For career advice and resources follow these feeds:

Hiring Librarians – @HiringLib

The Daily Muse – @dailymuse

Mashable Jobs – @mashablejobs

Alison Green of Ask A Manager – @AskAManager

And, of course, the Twitter feeds for all of the INALJ state pages!

These are the Twitter feeds that I follow, but I’m sure there are many more good ones out there. I would love to hear about them! Post your recommendations in the comments.
