What is Twitter then?
Twitter's a social networking website, thats allows real-time short messaging service that gives you 140 characters to tell the world – or just your friends – what you're up to or thinking about.
It's a good way of staying in touch with friends or keeping up to date with topics that interest you. It can also be a great way to find a new job. Here is how it works.
The Purejobs guide to Twitter and finding a job on Twitter
There are several job hunting services on Twitter but Jobsite does it a little differently. Most will send you a stream of jobs, but offer little in the way of matching the jobs to your own requirements. It's a bit like searching for a needle in the proverbial haystack.
Purejobs, however, is all about making job hunting as easy as possible. That's why we'll only send you jobs that match your needs. We'll make sure your Twitter jobs are for the right kind of role, in the right location and for the right salary.
EXAMPLE OF A TWEET JOB?
We'll send you your jobs via Direct Message on Twitter. This will keep your job hunting private. When you see a job you like, you can simply apply for is using your usual Purejobs account.

“It’s about who you know”
How do you get to know the right people? It’s not always about who you’re looking for, some people on Twitter are actually looking for YOU.
There are many job recruiters who use Twitter to look for potential candidates. Before contacting a recruiter via Twitter, check out:
• Their bio
• Follower/Following ratio (Have they been around a while? Do they follow people back?)
• Click the link to their website
• Ask others in your network whether or not the recruiter is a credible source
