Below is a job posting from my employer. I didn’t see it until it was already posted – and customers showed it to me.
We screwed this posting up in a couple of ways (at least). We wrote it like we were hiring someone impersonal and or detached. And we didn’t consult the people already doing this work.
We’ve made great strides in Social Media/ Customer relations over the last months – but this shows we have a bit to learn. We don’t have an overall corporate strategy on social media (yet). We haven’t driven the message internally on who “owns” this (yet).
These are the things I get to help with. This is why I think I have one of the most awesome jobs ever.
This is why 100 hours a week doesn’t feel like work.
I work for a company that is letting me influence these things – and they are listening, and giving me not only a voice, but a mandate.
In fact, they think I am moving too slowly 🙂
How cool is that?
