It Starts With YOU (A Job Opening)

Posted on October 13, 2009


You probably heard by now the recent marketing campaign of Yahoo! whose core message is focused on YOU.  As the campaign kicks off in the US and slowly expands to the rest of the markets (really looking forward to it hitting the Philippines), there’s a job opening in Yahoo! Southeast Asia that really coincides with the message of Yahoo!’s marketing campaign and it might interest YOU.

Social Media Producer

Yahoo! Southeast Asia is looking for an energetic social media producer to draw, connect and interact with users through new channels such as Twitter and Facebook. This position will be based in Manila.

As part of your daily responsibilities, you will be at the forefront of driving our news articles, blogs, discussions, polls and community activities through social media networks with the goal of attracting a wider audience to Yahoo!.

You must have at least 3-5 years of editorial experience at a newspaper, magazine, wire service or online media site and be able to work under a tight deadline. Blogging and multimedia experience is also a must.

An established personal online brand is an ideal. As a power user in social media, you must have at least 300 followers on Twitter, at least 200 connections on LinkedIn and at least 400 friends on Facebook.

You need to have a passion for social media and a thorough knowledge of the industry. You will be expected to flag trends and be aware of new social media sites on the horizon.

Because social media is really all about YOU, or one way of saying it is “YOU are the media.”  If you see yourself doing this kind of work, then feel free to email me your resume and I’ll make sure it reaches the right people.  Who knows, we just might be working together in the near future.
