101 Career Experts all Job Hunters Should Follow on Twitter

If you are currently in job search mode, I am sure you have heard that social networking is an essential component of a successful job search strategy.  This is definitely true but sometimes social media can seem overwhelming especially when there are hundreds of millions of people on Twitter.  We here at Career Copilot have compiled an up to date list of the top 101 (it was initially 100 – but I forgot to include myself) career professionals on Twitter.  These are truly the best of the best when it comes to doling out career and job hunting advice.  I know, I follow each and every one of them!

So, in no particular order…….

Who are the best career and job search experts on Twitter?
