People seeking work experience in the UK might be wise to keep track of companies they are interested in working for on social networking sites, if recent suggestions are anything to go by.
This follows an announcement reed.co.uk that people will soon be able to track vacancies through Twitter and LinkedIn.
James Swift, director and founder of Beyond Interactive, said: "If you look at IT sector, for example, the really switched-on candidates will use Twitter to find out about jobs before they get advertised in the mainstream."
He added the firms are now able to post about roles on social networking sites, which might allow them to reach a wider audience.
Mr Swift suggested people who make use of Twitter will therefore be at an advantage as they could know about the job sooner.
In the Budget earlier this week (March 23rd) Chancellor George Osborne revealed the government will fund 100,000 work experience places for young people over the next two years.All articles
