The most effective way to use Twitter to find a job is to follow thought leaders and influencers from the companies and job fields in which you have the most interest. Pay close attention to what these people are saying, what they are doing, and where they are going. Hopefully, they will follow you in return. When you feel comfortable, reach out to these individuals, introduce yourself, and ask for opportunities to speak with them and obtain their advice. All of this will lead to them following you and them paying attention to what you have to say. Essentially, this is networking. Leverage Twitter to build your network, then leverage your network to get the career that you desire.
