Obama Campaign seeking social media staffers

in Uncategorized by

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is seeking “social media copywriters.”

From an ad on the job board for the professional left, Jobs That Are Left, first spotted by New York politics beatwriter Azi Paybarah:

We’re looking for writers who can tell stories in 140 characters or less, put complex policy into Facebook-friendly terms, and help plan and create original content that people will be compelled to share with their friends.

A great candidate will be able to formulate a social media plan for specific goals and audiences, write content for it with a clear, consistent voice, and analyze outcomes to make the next campaign even better. You should have a head for politics, a sense of humor, and buckets of common sense.

The post from the campaign, Obama for America, says the team is hiring staffers at all levels.
