Are you in need of a job? Are you looking for a career? 3 Schipulites have answers. Well, this video may not solve all of those issues, but it will give you some tips on things to do, and some things not to do.

All three of us used a combination of twitter DM's, facebook stalking, and curated blogging to find our jobs. You will no doubt find our somewhat exaggerated short story interesting and useful in your career search.


So Courtney, what did you do today?
Played the guitar, I checked my emails, and then

I laid out. Hi my name is Caitlin, I just
graduated with a marketing degree. I stuck

around an extra semester and picked up a
minor in classical studies, because I'm

pretty terrified of the real world. Hi
I'm J-Mo, I just quit my job and I'm now

looking for a new one, so I'm real
excited to get out there and you

know, put my name out and meet people and
shake hands, and all of that

A typical day for me is waking up, eating oatmeal,
checking my facebook, commenting on

friends statuses. I've been on Twitter
for a long time, kind of addicted. I tweet

about, you know, five to ten times a day.
They say tweet as much as you eat, so

every time I get a snack I tweet, and I
think that's okay. Oh yeah, I totally got

Twitter. Caitlin set me up, bless her
little heart, but I mean I don't

I still don't get it, and the only thing I care
about is that I have twitter and John

Michael doesn't have Twitter. Wait, she said I wasn't
on Twitter? Everybody's on

Twitter. My mom is on Twitter. She's the
Twitter. I've sent some emails to some

friends that I know who were doing kind of what
I want to do. That seems to be going

decently. Those are at least people I
know and I feel like I'm not

not talking to a brick wall like I am on
lots of company websites. Well, one of the things

I plan to do is use resumes, right?
Everybody's got a resume, but I've got a

I've got a whole stack of resumes, and
what I'm going to do is go

stand outside of office buildings and
just hand my resume out to anyone that

that wants to take it, and I think
that'll be a great way to get people to

you know, hire me and give me a job. I
think I'm one step above him in the

employment process, I really do. I mean
he's out walking around, I'm tweeting . I'm

tweeting about what I ate - PB&J today.
Yeah, it's been really good

I've heard back from a couple of jobs,
and I've got to make a big

decision, and I'm really kind of worried.
Just a second, it's Courtney. Hey what's

going on? Oh, it's going really well, I'm
kind of stressed out, I have three

jobs to choose from and I just
don't know what to.. I think she

hung up on me. So, I've been doing some
writing on the internet, on a blog and

such, and actually it's been going real
well. I write about office stuff,

about work, and about the future, and
there was a CEO from a company that came

and commented on my blog , and I've been
talking with him on Twitter, and

hopefully it's going to turn into
something, so I'm definitely excited

about that. Decided to check out my
friend's Facebook pages, not just for

current photos, but to see where they're
employed. Did some stalking for about

three weeks, got an interview, and you're
looking at an employee right now
