Recruiting, Social Media, and Friends. Twitter Rocks!

From Jason Buss (@jjbuss).

What all started with my first tweet - has continued to evolve into something so much more than answering that simple question - “what are you doing”?

After talking with a good friend earlier this year (@seerysm) about twitter, I decided to give it a try. So I started with a few followers, continued tweeting, networking, and talking with many great people. I even posted a few stories on my blog about twitter, including:

* 6 Benefits of Using Twitter as a News, Networking, and Marketing Tool
* Twitter vs. Plurk: What the Tweeps are Saying
* Social Media and Networking: Ten Twitter Tools

Until… Last night, when I had the opportunity to meet with many thought leaders in the recruiting industry (Don Ramer, CEO & Founder of Arbita; founder Jason Davis; and LinkedIn Guru and Six Degrees from Dave’s own Dave Mendoza, and The Recruiting Roadshow’s John Sumser to name a few).

Even more special than that are the stronger relationships, and new friends with those that I have interacted with online for months. A big shout out to @marenhogan, @MNHeadhunter, and @txaggie94).

Other tweeps I met: @ttierney, @jokahn, @recruitingblogs, @jphogan, and @johsumser.

A special thanks for the opportunity goes to Paul DeBettignies, Co-Founder and Coordinator of Minnesota Recruiters.

Twitter and many other social media tools have tremendous benefits. Like most things, you’ll get out of it what you put into it.

Tweet on.
