While many of the tweeters have Ph.Ds in history, a lot of the advice also applies to undergraduates and masters-level students who want to use their history majors and degrees in work outside of the academy. Unfortunately, the link to the program and speakers seems to be broken.
Here are just a few of my retweets so far:
