Did You Know That You Can Tweet Your Way Into Work Experience?

Sarah Finnan

Job hunting is not a fun hobby. It’s stressful and tiring and requires your undivided attention and commitment.

But maybe there’s another way…

TwitterDublin has launched an online competition called #OneTweetCV today, encouraging people to share their CV in a unique way – through one Tweet.

Gone are the days when job seekers were advised to avoid using social media for job hunting, with more and more people turning to online applications

According to Twitter research, almost 70% of 18 to 24-year-olds think that CVs don’t allow them to really show employers who they are.

The competition, which runs until November 1, will allow three winners exclusive access to the Twitter headquarters in Dublin for a full day of work experience.

You’ll get a feel for a range of different departments throughout the day and even have the chance to explore areas that are of particular interest to you.

Applicants must be over 18 to apply, with the only other stipulation being that you comply with the 280 character Tweet limit.

That’s one way to make you think outside the box and get creative.

Have a look at last year’s UK winner for inspiration.
