If you are looking for a job or internship in fashion, beauty, or retail, it's imperative to exhaust all of your resources. Twitter is becoming a popular go-to destination for jobseekers looking for up-to-the-minute job listings. By following the timelines listed below, you are sure to stay on top of the rapidly changing job market.

NYC Retail Jobs @nyc_pur_jobs -Hosted by Yahoo! Hotjobs, this is a great timeline for retail jobs, mostly for sales associates, store managers, and other store level positions. There's also @atl_pur_jobs and @lax_pur_jobs (I still haven't figured out what pur stands for...)

Get Fashion Jobs @GetFashionJobs -A good source for fashion & retail jobs. I was able to find a few non-fashion jobs sprinkled in, so make sure you are specific when you start a search.
