Gov. Tim Pawlenty Will Deliver Tweetnote, Address Getting Americans Back to Work
LOS ANGELES (July 12, 2011) – TweetMyJobs will present the first-ever American Jobs Conference on Twitter on Tuesday, July 19, 2011, starting at 9 a.m. PDT and concluding at 3:15 p.m. PDT. Created with the 14 million unemployed Americans in mind, the American Jobs Conference brings together leaders in government, technology, business and recruiting to engage in real-time, nationwide conversations about employment with Americans of all ages on Twitter. Gov. Pawlenty's Tweetnote will be followed by a Tweet Panel and a series of Career Chats focusing on ways to use social media to enhance and expedite job searching. The announcement was made by Robin D. Richards, Chairman & CEO of TweetMyJobs.
"We cannot stand idly by while millions of Americans remain unemployed. I'm proud to participate in TweetMyJobs' ground-breaking American Jobs Conference to help those looking for work find it using the most cutting edge social media tools available today," said Pawlenty, former governor of Minnesota and 2012 Republican Candidate for the President of the United States.
"The American Jobs Conference will open the dialogue for recognizable change and we are thrilled to bring so many well-respected government and industry leaders together on one platform," said Richards. "Our goal is to raise awareness with job seekers and small businesses about how effective social media can be in terms of recruiting connections. Small businesses are the engine for job creation and social media opens new, affordable avenues for those companies to connect with job seekers."
