30 people to follow on Twitter if you want a job in banking and finance

Working out who to follow on Twitter if you're interested in finance isn't a huge problem. There are probably more lists of the top finance people to follow on Twitter than there are people tweeting about finance on the micro-blogging site. Less clear, is who to follow on Twitter if you want a job in finance

Fret no more. In no special order, we bring you the non-definitive list of banking and finance careers-focused accounts to follow on the micro-blogging site. We've omitted all journalists who don't cover careers specifically. Naturally, some of our own accounts are listed first of all.
