Author Lindsey Pollak: ‘Twitter Is Crucial’ for Job Seekers

JENNIFER PULLINGER

lindsey112.jpg How useful is Twitter in helping one obtain a job in new media? What about when promoting your book or author platform? Writer Jennifer Pullinger put the question to bestselling author and career expert Lindsey Pollak, one of the speakers at the Mediabistro Career Circus August 4.

“Twitter is crucial because it allows you to create a personalized newsfeed of the thoughts, questions, activities, and opinions of people in the industry you want to join. That information is invaluable for a jobseeker trying to meet people and make a good impression in the industry.”

“Participating in the conversation on Twitter is like attending a conference or networking event all day, every day. If I were looking for a job in new media, I would follow every single person who works in the company or industry I want to join.”

Lindsey Pollak talks about building a meaningful public profile and social presence in her upcoming presentation at Mediabistro Career Circus on August 4 in New York.
