The Twitter Battle of Epic Controversy

We recently Tweeted this Chicago Tribune article, Why You Should Think Twice About That Infographic Resume, by Erik Bowitz of the Brazen Careerist.

We tweeted the article from @AkronWorks, the twitter page of our local job board, AkronWorks.com. AkronWorks.com provides job posting services in Akron, OH and offers job search and resume tips to job seekers on Twitter and Facebook.
