The Hired Guns are seeking an entry-level Social Media Coordinator for one of the biggest names in your medicine cabinet. You’ll be joining their brand journalism lab in a contract role (which could go full time, if you play your cards right). If you studied Journalism or Mass Communications in college and are looking for a high-intensity newsroom vibe, this could be it.
If you’re self-motivated and know your way around a newsroom (even if it was your college newspaper), you’ll be perfect for this gig. It is hands-on content production and distribution via the website and other social feeds, including Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. You’ll also traffic the workflow of the social feeds. You’ll liaise with Editorial and Communications leadership to strategize audience growth and development, and create new content structured around breaking news and tentpole initiatives — all with a humanistic angle.
Adapting stories to fit each social platform, you’ll bring users through the engagement funnel and drive repeat views, return users, and trigger engagements through various activations.
That said, you need to also be ready to act as an all-around editorial assistant. That means organized, up for scut-work, and down for the unexpected. The good news is that you’ll learn the ins and outs of branded content from some of the best people in the business.
What Success Looks Like
Eager, organized, sharp. These are three adjectives you want everyone saying about you after your first 2 weeks on the job. And you want your boss saying, “I can’t believe how much more work we’re pushing out the door since [INSERT YOU] arrived.
