Career Center Twitter Chat with Employers

This February The Career Center is launching a new initiative that will allow you to:
  1. Get valuable tips on standing out in your job/internship search
  2. Speak to and ask employers questions directly
  3. Potentially win cool prizes just by participating.
On select weeks, one pre-selected organization will lead out a live Twitter chat using the hashtag #EmployerBuzz. It is a 2-day process that starts on Monday mornings and ends on Tuesday evenings.

Be sure to follow @TheEmployerBuzz twitter handle because we'll be sharing clues about the organization's workplace, culture, hiring practices, day in the life, and sample job titles throughout the day on those pre-selected Mondays.

Send us a tweet telling us who you think the Employer of the Week is using the hashtag #MysteryMonday and you'll be entered into our drawing. Each week three randomly selected students from the University of Michigan will be chosen to receive an iTunes gift card.

Monday evening we'll reveal who our Twitter Employer of the Week is. The following Tuesday will then be used to engage in a live chat with that employer.

Check out the Career Center site for details.
