This is the modern world

...and I've fallen so far behind...

At least, my LinkedIn is starting to work for me. People I don't know personally have now started to link in with me, and one or two have actually taken the trouble to point me to job openings. None very pertinent so far, but that's my fault for not properly defining what I'm looking for exactly. That'll be my task for the coming week then, and while I'm at it, I can stop giving out the impression that I'm desperate, as it's not currently doing me any favours.

Also, I keep being told that I should set up a Twitter-account as more and more job opportunities are being tweeted these days. But I'm not sure how this works and so I haven't followed that advice yet. What would I call myself, for one thing? What if I set up an account and I don't use it, as I don't use any of my social media-accounts except for LJ? I'd only be clogging up cyberspace.

So, I turn to you, oh flist, to tell me: Twitter -- a good idea, or a bad one?

To tweet or not to tweet.

tis a battle I lost long since!

@Jules_J

I use mine less to tweet my own 140 character mini-rambles (although they do sneak through) but more to find out stuff!/prizes/offers/freebies/all kinds of info - I follow theatres, actors, writers, bands, local organisations... and if has been a gift! - several gifts.

And I'm sure the job opportunity tweets are just as plentiful.

Nothing to lose?
