Dragon's Den judge and entrepreneur Peter Jones is currently looking for recruits to take up a job with him, if his recent Twitter posts are anything to go by.

According to the Daily Telegraph blog, Katie Prescott, the current executive assistant to Mr Jones, posted a message revealing that her job is up for grabs, which may interest business graduates.

Ms Prescott added that an advert for the position would go up on the Guardian secretarial website on Monday (June 1st).

Martha Lane Fox, co-founder of travel site Lastminute.com, is also using Twitter to look for graduate job hopefuls, offering a six-month contract to university leavers via the social networking application.

She posted: "looking 4 a bright young thing 2 b a temp assistant and do all sorts for 6 months - pref 1st job but with tonnes of energy and brains pls."

Fiona Hewitt, director of design agency Brand YOU, recently told the Independent that those looking for graduate jobs should be treating sites such as Facebook and Twitter as online CVs.
