Questions for Carmen Hudson:

    • TweetAJob - I guess the name says it all, but give us some background on this new venture of yours.
    • How does this work for recruiters & employers?
    • Why do I need your service? Why can't I just Tweet my own jobs?
    • How about jobseekers?
    • When I do a job search on Tweetajob where do the jobs in come from?
    • Things I hear about Twitter from folks working in Fortune 100 companies.
    • It's silly - who has the time?
    • I don't get it at all… who cares what you had for lunch?
    • Its a bunch of people with zero marking budget engaged in self-promotion.
    • My company blocks sites like Twitter. They don't want us wasting time on that stuff.
    • As far as I know, this is the first entrepreneurial venture you've done. What have you learned from your experience going from a global organization to a small startup?
    • Isn't it somewhat unnerving to create a business using a platform you have no control over?
    • Let's shift gears and talk about your presentation at Social Recruiting -- Living out Loud: How to Connect With an Audience, Build Loyalty, Be Authentic, and Create a Voice. You've been blogging for over three years -- why did you decide to start blogging?
