We’re looking to hire a Social Media Ambassador!
You need an opportunity that gives you purpose, pride, and continuous challenge and growth – an opportunity that can spark a career. You don’t like set hours and workplaces, so the flexibility is up your alley. You were born with a mouse in your hand, and eyes focused on a monitor. Okay, so maybe you are not that young, but you’ve caught up fairly quickly. Your DNA is made up of Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Twitter–not nucleotides. You’re a tech freak, but not a computer geek. You’ve got social skills—like an EQ of 150! So surrounding yourself with machines or down in a computer science bunker is out of the question. Yet, social media was something you mastered before everyone else jumped onto the bandwagon. You just feel at home in this environment. Finding you online is a no-brainer, and keeping a pulse on the latest conversations keeps you excited like a runner waiting for the start of a race. Change is something you thrive on, and navigating the ever-changing digital world is just a basic instinct for you. Your online profiles are up to date. You’re driven by the need to acquire and share information that is helpful. You understand that conversations online can create something big, something special, something that will make a significant impact in this world in a real and meaningful way. You have a Twitter, Facebook, G+, and LinkedIn account with hundreds of followers and have mastered them all. Your blog gets people talking and thinking. You’re interested in everything that relates to moms, and raising children to reach their ultimate potential. Your life is managed by Apps. You haven’t grown out of your childhood phase of asking questions. You’re ambitious. A 9-5 job sounds mediocre for you. You want your job to feel like a hobby that you can’t get enough of. You want more autonomy, more growth opportunities, more records to break. You can’t be defined by a job description, since you’re not quite sure where this journey might take you. You understand that Attitude determines Altitude, and you want to ascend to 30,000 feet.
