Connect with VA: Save the Date for Wednesday, June 25



Are you a job-searching health care professional interested in knowing more about a career at VA?

Perhaps you’ve started the application process, but want to speak to a “live person” about your qualifications.

Or maybe you’re already working at VA, and feel like your unique knowledge and insight might be useful to someone who is interested in a career.

If you identify with any of these scenarios, we hope you participate in our upcoming Twitter Chat on Wednesday, June 25 at 3:00-3:30pm ET. This will be a great opportunity for you to find new connections by sharing your own experiences and learning from others—all in 140 characters or less!

What is a Twitter Chat?

A Twitter chat is a public Twitter conversation around one unique hashtag (ours is #WorkAtVA). The goal of a Twitter chat is to connect people with similar interests. By participating, you can gain real-time knowledge about careers at VA and also grow your professional network by meeting and following new people.

How does it work?

Imagine being in a classroom with a panel of experts at the front of the room, prepared to answer your questions. They’ve had time to talk, but now it’s time for the Q&A. Everyone in the room can raise their hand at once, or whenever something comes to mind. Questions get answered quickly and in the order they were received. Everyone leaves with a better understanding of the topic, and everyone has learned from the questions and answers of other participants. The bonus: You get a transcript of the Q&A session to take home, just in case you need to reference it later.

Now, move that experience online and you have a Twitter chat.

How do I participate?

If you don’t already, start following @VACareers on Twitter. On the day and time of the event, a host and group of VA National Recruiters will begin by tweeting and will be on standby to answer questions and address Tweets that use the correct hashtag. By using #WorkAtVA, you can follow the discussion and participate in it. You can also go back after the scheduled chat and reference tweets that are connected to #WorkAtVA.

Be sure to mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 25th at 3:00-3:30pm ET. We look forward to “tweeting” you then!
