Social Media Internship - Paid

Recommended Posts

Surly is looking to have someone who isn't completely useless like blacklab and myself are on all social media platforms.

Resumes without pics will be thrown out.

[Serious]

We are looking for a member to join the Surly team and help curate some of our best content to get it out on the wider web via social media posting and management. Job duties would include things like post of the day, major developments in recruiting, replying to other twitter/facebook/instagrame accounts with funny content/memes, etc 

Candidates should have either prior experience with social media management platforms (hootsuite or whatever) or have a provable significant following on any social media platorm(s) that doesn't comprise of mostly bots. Candidates should also be local to the Austin area since we will probably meet in person fairly often, although we would consider non-local candidates with strong experience.

Obviously no degree is required, but bonus points if you are a UT Student and obviously super bonus points if you are a content contributor on the site already. 

A little bit about Surlyhorns:

We are a top 12,000 website in the US by traffic and have over 60k unique users per month visit the site and of those over 5,000 daily active users. At any given time we have between 750 and 2,000 users accessing content on our site and all content is created by our glorious members. 

Perks of the job:

You get to be a mod!
You get paid to browse Surly!
Involvement in the SurlyHorns Podcast!
Help formulate our social media strategy as a resume builder
Weekly lunch meet ups.

Don't get the wrong expectation:

This will not be a high paying job, you will be a 1099 contractor and pay will depend on experience - We aren't looking to spend more than bout treefiddy
There are no benefits (health/vision/dental/life insurance/etc) of any kind
This should probably not be your only job unless you have a trust fund

Where to send your info?

Send your resume, a paragraph or 2 about why you would be a good fit and links to social media sites you either manage or your personal account with over 5k followers to gigs@surlyhorns.com

Bonus points if you post your paragraph(s) here and receive over 20 rep

Where's Rocko when you need him? Pics of a used Corvette, suits with the tags still on, and Scandinavian post-op trannys is exactly what this site needs to pop on social media.

I would gladly apply for this position. However, if I'm getting paid to Surf the Surly, you best not pay me by the hour you'd go broke, I'm here nearly all the time. However after rereading your qualification list I'm even more useless than you and black lab so I guess that leaves me out. However if you get desperate drop me a line or private message.

Sincerely,

Shooter 12 social media Guru

Edit: I'll take my bonus rep now.

It’s finally time for Phlegm’s creative mind to be put to good use.  No better representative for the wealth of knowledge provided by this site.

Maybe you can hire away TexasWolf?

But can the Surl tolerate 238 consecutive posts in the same thread every day?

I nominate Derka


I’m pretty sure that this post resulted in the majority of posters having to come up with something else. Definitely the first thing that crossed my mind.

You just can't compete with what Shaggytexas is paying for people to post content.

Bump

no wonder you need to hire a social media director - you buried this thread on a board that is rarely visited, might as well send up smoke screens.

I will consider it - but I have a few demands we should discuss before we really start negotiations.
-  my parking tickets paid
- a collection of 8-track tapes
- a full weeks Emperors package at Caesars Palace
- never pay taxes, again - ever
- a black S500 to receive me at the airport, with the interior to be exactly 71°

I'll be happy to do it if you let me farm it out to a dozen kids that I have yet to meet in a certain other country.

And I'll need a bonus for every regular user that I run off.

That's how I throw the paradigm under the bus.

Looking for someone who fits this description here is like looking for the righteous man in a den of thieves.

I know of a guy with lots of experience with the twatters and such but I can't remember the name. I think it's Italian, like Petrocelli - something like that. Was working at PWC last I heard.

I retweeted last night. I'm proud of myself. I'll try to get some momentum going on the Twitter account before just pawning it off on someone I guess. How hard can it be?
