There are language-lovers who just want to sit in the ivory tower and there are language-lovers (like you) who want to roll up their sleeves and take their passion out into the world. If you are a talented social media manager with strong editorial skills, here’s an opportunity to join a lit-friendly media company in the midst of building an impressive social-media presence. If the lamp of language burns brightly within you, read on.
Yours will be the bailiwick under which falls the assigning, editing and posting of the blog posts, lists and other content for which this brand is becoming famouser and famouser. You’ll manage the outfit’s social media profiles and feeds, and you’ll constantly be thinking about how to improve them to build a large and loyal following. Playing a role that’s equal parts wordsmith and marketer, you’ll be absolutely catholic in your quest for juicy, addictive material, whether that means getting irresistible video content built, dreaming up a new daily list, figuring out some language-learning tool that’s sure to get people hooked, whatever. You’ll work closely with in-house writers and designers to create only the most sterling stuff. Then, as you find out what’s working and what’s not, you’ll eagerly share what you’ve learned in the form of best practices and workflow ideas.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
While words have always been your playground, this will not be your first content-production/social media management outing – you’ve been killing it in that area for a good three to five years already: SEO, analytics and the whole nine yards. But thank God for that natural-born and hard-practiced literary talent, because it places you among the best of the best when it comes to the conceptualizing, writing and editing of headlines, descriptions, blog posts and newsletters. And let’s not overlook the type of worker you are. Your organizational and project management skills are admirable, and you’re a pleasure to work with – collaborative as the mob, fair as Scarborough, eager as a nutria or perhaps some even more severely maloccluded aquatic mammal.
Be sure to highlight any previous startup experience, since this employer is particularly interested in finding someone who’s self-driven and versatile.
In this era of specialization, it gets harder and harder to find gigs that reward a balance of skills in equal measure, but this is surely one of them. If you’re a language nut with a real flair for social media management, we reckon you’ll be hard-put to find a better place to put it all to work.
