My Best Recruiting Call Yet

I got my best recruiting call yet last week.  The position was Director of New Media for a biotech/pharma company, a bit past the startup phase (1100 employees, US$227m revenue), but certainly no big fish.  The scope was to ensure the company voice was well placed in the world of social media, and set an appropriate strategy for the same.  Too cool – isn’t that just a further extension what I’m currently trying to do, but not quite getting credit for? 😉

I’m too pleased with my current employer to be on the market.  But I do enjoy window shopping.  As intriguing as this position sounds, it was also a relocation situation, with the company being out East.  I love the coast, but I love MN even more.

And that was the most amusing part of the call.  The recruiter commented that she just “could not pull anyone out of Minnesota” and added “you guys must really have the lifestyle”!  Indeed.  It’s not for everyone, but it most definitely suits me.

    I understand that GSK has appointed a “social media” manager this year to experiment how social media can be used as a tool to boost corporate communications and marketing.
