People helping people: @jobangels

This week’s people helping people is inspired by someone that I follow on twitter: @jobangels. I found an interesting article in Forbes about the JobAngels movement, and how it got started. Apparently, JobAngels was started by an avid twitter user, Mark Stelzner, who owned a recruiting company in DC. He asked “What if each of us helped one person find a job. Are you game?” Like all great things on twitter, the idea blew up, and JobAngels was born, a volunteer movement of people trying to help one another find jobs for themselves. Even though @jobangels doesn’t have an actual website, they have a huge twitter following, over 13,000 people. Though there’s no way to know for sure, Stelzner is certain that JobAngels around the world have helped hundreds of job seekers find jobs. Many more have received job search mentoring help from wide variety of job seekers. Are you a job angel? Or did you find a job from a job angel? Let me know!
