Social networks manager for Obama could be you

Organizing for America Organizing for America (the successor organisation to Obama for America) and the Democratic National Committee are recruiting a new social networks manager.The new recruit will be responsible for maintaining the Democratic Party and Organizing for America accounts on all social networks (such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace accounts, etc.)

The Wall Street Journal reports that Mia Cambronero, who currently holds the job, ‘will be stepping down from my infamous role as ‘Barack Obama’s twitterer,” she said in an email message posted to a listserv. ‘We’re looking for someone who is available to start immediately.’

Essential qualifications include:

  • Excellent writing and editing skills with strong attention to detail; your writing is strong, sharp, and personable
  • Strong organizing and campaigning instincts; you can craft messages that move people to act, and you know what actions will achieve the right impact at the right time
  • Strong familiarity with social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.
  • Ready to work hard; this isn’t a 9-5 sort of job
  • Ability to work under deadline pressure
  • Ability to manage multiple complex projects
  • Passionate about engaging millions of Americans in advancing President Obama’s agenda and changing the country
  • Candidates must be willing to relocate to Washington, DC

Bizarrely the job advert on the Obama website doesn’t give a closing date for applications.

    Oh! My! God! What a dead end job! It has only been a year, but SM and the crowd is out of favour, big time with the Obam administration's cheerleaders. Here's three tidbits revealing the direction in which things are really going:

    Obama's chief of staff Rahm Emanuel dismisses liberals as retards

    Jacob Weisberg's writing on Slate blames the childish, ignorant American public—not politicians—for our political and economic crisis (for childish ignorant read SM & crowd or the mob)

    http://www.slate.com/id/2243797/

    If that's not enough evidence, read, the founding fathers saw this coming, but the walls they erected to contain the mob may no longer hold by Kurt Andersen

    http://nymag.com/news/politics/63662/#ixzz0fRG1

    It would seem that now that the GOP has mastered bottom up (Tea Parties etc.) Obama and his cronies are discovering top down to keep them at bay.

    Funny old world – keep your hats on and never take the hype at face value.

    I have a question Does Obama has all this qualifications which you asked as minimum qualification from us?? And secon question who wants to work for/ with Obama?? Because I had read so many acid comments and reviews for Mr. Obama I don't think there is anyone stand to work for or with him. That's what I heard and read for him. I personally have no problem with him as he is not my president. :)
