Lots of people have heard of Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn by now. A good portion of you are tweeting, blogging and staying in touch regularly with your network, friends, and family. Along the way you are also in hope of finding your next client or referral.
How about helping someone find their next job?
With nano second speed, a single tweet sent out January 29, 2009. is starting to help the unemployed one job at a time. Sent by Mark Stelzner Principal/Founder at Inflexion Advisors, the tweet said “Was thinking that if each of us helped just 1 person find a job, we could start making a dent in unemployment. You game?” In a short period of time, over 1,500 Job Angels have spread themselves across the internet. Donations of network space, time, and expertise have started making a big difference in helping people who need to find a connection to a new job and a new hope in their lives.
Many people in the world today look at the US and think we are going down for the count. Some of them are rejoicing at the thought. How little they actually know the American people and their spirit. From the food bank drives being held all over the country. From the school kids saving their pennies to help another in need. Job Angels is another indication that while we may be down, we are far from being out.
If you or someone you know could become a Job Angel, will you do your part by spreading the message to those you know? These are the links to the various groups and the website.
