Increasingly employers are using social media to gain a first impression of potential employees. Therefore it is important that job seekers are aware of the impact of their online actions, and of the potential for their twitter feed to act like a 21st century cv. Jamie’s Masters Project, Tweet t’who, focuses on developing methods to help people in transition from education to professional life, to better understand and manage their online Twitter identity. Tweet t’who aims to create critical awareness of the blurred boundaries between personal and professional online conduct and to help young people manage their identity through Twitter effectively. Jamie has worked alongside the IMprints research project investigating public responses to future identity Management practices and technologies to design and develop an efficient tool for young people moving from education to employment that will engage both employers and the general public alike.
