Who To Follow On Twitter: Forest Products Jobs Edition


If a tweet is sent from the forest, does anybody read it?

If you follow some of the Twitter accounts we recommend here, then yes!

The forest products industry has been a bit more conservative than others when it comes to using social media, but it’s starting to come around – and this week is probably one of the best to start following thanks to PaperWeek Canada, the annual conference of the pulp and paper industry taking place in Montreal from Feb. 4-8.

Since the industry overall is so new to social media, you’ll have a better chance at standing out to employers and maybe even becoming a social media leader in the industry yourself!
