December 27, 2012

Got this via a Facebook friend. I’m casual pals with the person who held this job until recently, and I can tell you these are big shoes to fill, but if  you can do it, it’s a great gig. Job Description The New Media Manager is responsible for optimizing the business of the City through […]

Job: Social Media Manager, Blink Media Works, Gastown

October 1, 2012

0

This job came via LinkedIn, appropriately enough almost like a flashback. Jeez, remember 2006? Didn’t it seem like actually DOING social media would be the way to that income you turned your back on when you refused to go to law school? It’s been many years since Gastown’s tech scene featured the Friday Night beer […]

This one is Vangroover based and came to me via a FB link from Irwin Oostindie at W2, but it’s on their website too: We’re looking for a Communications Assistant (deadline May 24) Job Posting: Communications Assistant, Demonstrating Value (Vancity Community Foundation) Position Description The Demonstrating Value program at Vancity Community Foundation seeks a Communications Assistant […]

#OpSpamHeadChop 2.0

April 2, 2012

2

It seems our enemies the Twitter spammers have (mostly) given up on their old tactics of using an army of spambots to @-direct people to one central account, which then directs people to a website. I guess the first iteration of #OpSpamHeadChop was too effective for their liking, and Twitter is wise to their games. […]

Social Media Lessons from the Homeless: Ideawave 2011

March 28, 2012

7

I love the Ideawave conferences. No matter what the topic, the timeline is ten minutes, so it’s ideal for Short Attention Span Theatre chicks like mineself, whether we’re presenting or just watching. In the last two instances, I have been presenting, so here is me from 2011 presenting on Social Media Lessons from the Homeless. […]

Eat.Drink.Tweet in Penticton Feb 17-19

January 27, 2012

1

Yes, I’m a conference junkie, but at least I’m addicted to speaking at them rather than paying to attend. And once again, Allison Markin the Social Media Queen of the Okanagan has invited me to speak at Eat.Drink.Tweet, a social media conference dedicated to food, wine, tourism, and of course, social media. As you might […]

Job: social media and communications manager, Faronics

January 27, 2012

2

This one came to me via Twitter. It’s a local Vancouver company, and I can’t tell you anything about it other than I got this from Ajay and KC and they don’t put their names behind just any old company or any old job opening. Apply via LinkedIn and may the best guru win (I […]

Job: Spa Week Intern

January 20, 2012

7

Yes, it appears to be a paid gig at Spa Week. How can you tell? Well, I wouldn’t post it if it weren’t, what with unpaid internships being the way the middle-class keeps its grip on certain industries, and us being so not about that. This job is in-person, in New York, and yes, it’s […]

CoverItLive in a WordPress.com Blog

December 23, 2011

8

I’m of two minds about CoverItLive: on the one hand, there’s nothing better at pulling in multiple realtime feeds and combining them into actual content and a coherent conversation all at once. It can even pull in emails and display media like videos and photos in the CiL box. Slick! On the other, it’s an […]

Job: Digital Reporter at the Daily What

December 21, 2011

Got this one off Tumblr (obviously). It’s not just reporting, but photoshopping too, so if you have a digital quiver full of skillz, bring them all and may the best meme-sniffer win. PSA of the Day: Hey! You! The one in the back with the exceptional communication and organizational skills. Yes, you. Wanna write for The Daily […]
