These days, when Twitter is one of our primary venues to discover news, articles, job tips, and more, being selective about who you follow is important. Personally, I organize my Twitter in private lists, so if I’m looking for marketing news, I have a feed of just that. What’s happening in publishing? One click. Career news? These are the women I turn to. As I am irritated by those obsessive content-sharers who automatically post every career article on the web on any given day, you won’t find those here. These women are brilliant, successful, and will enhance your Twitter feed (and your career) with only the best content and advice.

A USA Today columnist on the workplace and award-winning journalist, Anita Bruzzese strikes the perfect balance between sharing some of the top workplace content on the web and being a sassy and sometimes hilarious tweeter (“Santa’s helpers are subordinate Clauses” Ha!). Her On the Job column is dead on, as are her observations about women in the workplace.

Alexandra Levit @alevit
Alexandra Levit is a workplace author, speaker, and columnist, but with a crucial twist: She doesn’t just focus on helping people find jobs, she encourages finding a meaningful job, and how to determine what those are. As someone who bounced around for the first three years of her career before having a career revelation and writing her first book They Don’t Teach Corporate in College, Alexandra knows this struggle firsthand. Her tweets also focus on helping college students and recent graduates hone the workplace skills you don’t necessarily learn at a university.
