Being a Social media advisor at my local SHRM chapter, my goal is to make more people get on to social media and help them benefit from the amazing opportunity to connect with, engage, network & learn from others.
Last month I facilitated a presentation on “How to use social Media to land a job” to an HR & Recruiting group and I understood majority of them don’t even know of various twitter chats and have not yet participated in any of them! When you have a great platform to share your thoughts on various trends happening at your industry, showcase your expertise and connect with like minded people why wouldn’t you use that opportunity? And I wrote this long time back on why I encourage you to join these online communities!
Check out these twitter chats. Every chat comes with unique and interesting questions every week that you can check on their website and look for previews to know the topic they are going discuss next week so you can be prepared. Now, if you missed participating in one of your favorite discussions you can even have a look at their achieves or recaps. How cool is that!
Here are top 10 twitter chats I follow
