How to Join Our #careerchangechat


You've heard about our Twitter Chat? Excellent! So, how do these Twitter chats work and how do you go about joining in on our #careerchangechat?

If you're new to Twitter or haven't participated in a live Twitter chat before, here are some useful tips to help you get started:

First things first:

A Twitter chat is when a group of Twitter users 'meet' at a pre-determined time to discuss a certain topic, using a designated hashtag (#). In our case it's #careerchangechat.

We will pose questions (designated with Q1, Q2…) to prompt responses (using A1, A2…) and encourage interaction amongst you all. Chats typically last an hour.

Imagine a business networking event—but without a dress code. The same social customs apply—courtesy and respect—and it’s a great way to meet new people with similar interests.

You can also leave the Twitter Chat whenever you want or you can just 'listen'. There's no obligation.

What Next?

  • Sign up for a Twitter account if you don't have one already. If you're new to Twitter we recommend taking a few minutes to learn what it’s all about.
  • Make sure you're following FRS on Twitter.
  • Follow our hashtag '#careerchangechat' using a Twitter Chat tool such as tchat. Using tchat, you just add the hashtag you want to follow (#careerchangechat) and begin chatting. Simple! The hashtag will be automatically added to each tweet, and the feed will update as you chat!

What to expect

Our #careerchangechat will always begin with a few minutes of welcome/warm up chat. We'll then begin to ask questions using this format:

@ForcesReruits: Q1: How is your day going? #careerchangechat

@You: A1: I'm having a great day thank you @ForcesRecruits! #careerchangechat

@ForcesRecruits - Q2: What was/has been your biggest transition challenge? #careerchangechat

@ANother - A2: Civilian job interviews. I struggle explaining my military skills and experience. #careerchangechat

@Sum1Else - A2: I agree with @ANother. Civilian job interviews are a real challenge! #careerchangechat

Notice how each question is numbered 'Q1, Q2, etc' and each answer corresponds with: 'A1, A2, etc?'

One last thing...

If you decide not to use a Twitter chat tool such as tchat, you must remember to include our hashtag #careerchangechat in every response 

Still confused?

Don’t worry, you have to try it a few times before it all sinks in.  We’re here to help! Tweet us at @ForcesRecruits or get in touch with us via our HQ.
