    Thanks for your question. At this time, I am not aware of a specific way to narrow searches by geographic location using Tweetdeck – perhaps one of my readers can offer insights. Check out for a Twitter-specific job search tool.

    When creating tweets that function and search strings for job opportunities is there a way to filter it down to a specific geographic location?

    I have to thank you for this tutorial. I joined Twitter a few weeks ago for the sole purpose of finding job leads, and I thought I had done all there was do to – which was to follow as many recruiters as possible. You have no idea how much this helped!! Thanks!
