It’s been over a month since my last update, and this one’s not exactly going to be filled with insight, commentary or anything resembling something that is not a job posting. (If you write like I just wrote, you’re officially out of the running). I’m overworked — I’m not getting nearly enough time to play games, walk my dogs and otherwise enjoy the non-working parts of life — and so I’m looking for a flunky awesome person to help me out.
Essentially I’m looking for someone interested in tackling all aspects of the job I do; I don’t really want to hog all the glory, and I know that interns tend to get stuck with the crappiest possible jobs. Yes, you’ll still be responsible for compiling reports for clients, but beyond that you’ll also have a chance to do all sorts of other stuff that’s a lot more fun.
Duties include, but are not limited to:
- Compile monthly coverage/buzz/community reports.
- Conduct media relations – harass journalists endlessly for coverage, write press releases, put together story pitches, follow up
- Do random marketing stuff, offering feedback on selling points, marketing copy and whatever else we have to help with
- Assist in planning PR, marketing/creative and community campaigns
- Interact with people — media, fans, whoever — on Twitter, Facebook, etc.
- Help with business development, securing new clients, partnerships, etc.
- Come up with cool new ways to promote clients and their products
- Contribute to this blog more often than I do
Doesn’t sound so bad, right? So here’s the type of person I’m looking for:
- Can put up with my stupid jokes
- Strong communication skills – both writey and speaky
- Not against working from home, wherever that may be
- Prefer someone in NYC, SF, LA or Edmonton… not necessary, though
- Knowledge of games industry necessary, tech and web knowledge nice
This is a paid part-time position, between 10 and 20 hours per week (variable), with the potential for full-time work at some undetermined point in the future. If you’re interested, please send your resume, cover letter — anything you think will make me like you — to [email protected].
