Spring clean your Twitter feed and make sure you’re following people that inspire your work!
Twitter isn’t just a tool for shaming unorganized airlines, however much we all love to. And more than an outlet for our microaggressions, the world’s most popular microblogging site is still a great place to get news and inspiration for your work life. So clear away the cobwebs that have formed this winter and give yourself a digital refresh on your social media.
Inspired by the mix of talent present at Hiring Success 18 in San Francisco, we’ve created a list of ‘must follows’ from the recruiting experts in the fields of branding, marketing, D&I, tech, and more – all of whom dazzled us at #Hire18.
