The time has come, to expand the Social Media team, here at Total Media, and so, I thought I’d try a slightly different approach to recruiting in for the role.
I’m looking to hire a Junior / Graduate Social Media Community Manager.
However, rather than just accepting CV’s directly, I’d like to see potential candidates for the role get creative in their responses. Ideally, as a candidate, you may already have expressed through one of your existing social media presences why you want to work in Social Media, and what kind of role it is that you’re looking for.
But on the off chance that you haven’t already, here’s a few pointers to help you along the way:
In your responses, tell me;
What do you know about Social Media? Where and how did you learn it? and why did you go to all that effort?
Why do you want to work in Social Media?
What is it that appeals to you about this industry/profession?
Also, what do you have to offer?
What makes you special, unique, or different to every other candidate that’s out there?
Finally, I’d like to know a little something more about you. What makes you tick? What are your hobbies, and interests?
What do you do when you’re not tweeting, or blogging? Essentially, what makes you you?
Once you’ve prepared your responses, post a link to it in the comments below, (and make sure to use your email address, when leaving a comment, so that I can get in touch with you!) You’ll get extra points for being creative, or different.
The opportunity to work with me at Total Media, means that you’ll get a chance to show off your skills as a community moderator, get coached on being more effective online, as well as learn how to work with Social Media Monitoring tools to identify conversational trends, individuals of influence, and learn to think more strategically about Social Media. The role is ideally suited to a Social Media Novice, who wishes to develop their skills further, get involved, hands on, with building out communities, and also over time, develop their own thought leadership within the Social Media world.
We shall not be changing the world overnight, but over the course of a few years, you will become an expert in the art of navigating all things Social, and be able to build powerful, engaging, immersive communities that build brand advocacy, and stimulate conversations online in your sleep.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, then get responding, through any platform/medium of your choosing, and leave your response in the comments below. I shall look forward to screening candidates, and choosing the brightest of the bunch to come visit, and talk more in person.
And just in case you’re interested starting salaries are going to be between £18-20k dependent on experience, and how effectively you demonstrate you know your stuff.
