  string(2955) "Bam, here I am Twitter! After months of ignoring any encouragement from friends and collegaues to join the millions of obsessed Twitter users, I somewhat reluctantly signed up a few weeks ago. When I say somewhat reluctantly, I mean I was forced by our Brand Manager, and then spent the next few weeks avoiding her in the hope she would forget all about it. But she didn’t. And now, after a good solid two hour training session, I am so pleased that she didn’t.

I can comfortably say I am in the honeymoon period. Not a real clue of how this works, or what the protocol is, but giving it a stab anyway. I get overexcited when receiving notifications (is that what they are called on here?) and have been refreshing my page like there is no tomorrow. My new love interest isn’t giving much away at the moment, but I aim to change that over the coming weeks and months to ensure we move into a comfortable, steady relationship. I am COMMITTED!

Being the manager of a busy temporary division in the Sydney market, it is becoming of increasing importance to keep up with the Jones’s in the way we interact with our business world. Social media has become the tool of communicative choice for our clients, candidates and competitors. People are increasingly visual and inherently nosy, myself included. They want to know you, to see the offices, to see the way you work and interact with your colleagues.

More and more the organisations we are working with are taking a humanistic approach to their brand management and marketing strategy, and so are our competitors. In the increasingly competitive service driven industry in which we work, it is becoming of upmost important to interact with our clients and candidates in this way. It’s becoming a cliché but the good ones normally do because they are true – ‘people do business with people‘.

With this in mind I have taken a Twitter vow. It may only be to myself, Christina our Brand Manager and my current 34 dedicated and highly appreciated followers, but I’ll take it anyway.

I will make the effort to connect with my clients, candidates, industry thought leaders and competitors through the medium of Twitter.

I will keep my posts relevant, interesting, and useful and just on the right side of personal; no cheesy memes, over shares or smug anecdotes will be found here.

Most importantly I will use my Twitter in a productive and engaging manner, and as a forum to further develop my leadership skills, my recruitment knowledge and keep my team competitive in this ever changing market.

Wish me luck! As they say, if you can’t beat them, join them.
