A lot of people think that the internet is a lawless place where they can ‘communicate’ and ‘share’ freely, without taking care of legitimacy, source or the intellectual property of the information they share. Well, it is not such a place.

Do you remember what teachers told us in college regarding decorum and plagiarism? I do! And I kept these lessons in mind until today because if you ever publish any content over the internet, these rules do apply to you as well.

Tweetsumé: 5 steps to tweet your résumé

Any job seeker knows that a paper résumé is not enough anymore. Internet is the prime source of job offers as well as candidate profiles: this is a unique place where recruiters and candidates can meet, without geographical boundaries or time frames. If you are looking for a job, the web is the place to be.

The past posts focused on Linkedin and how to compile the most attractive online profiles. The advices are more appropriate for Linkedin but can obviously match any similar networks such as Xing, Huzz or Plaxo. The first objective: publish your professional profile and build your network. But the final objective is the one to keep in mind: find a job!

This is the most exciting attribute of Twitter: there is no obligation of a two-way relationship. Mutuality is not required. On Twitter, you are free to follow people you don’t know, as well as strangers are free to follow you, as long as your profile is set up that way.
