If you’ve already read our article about using Facebook advertising in your job search, you might know the name Alex Payne. He was one of the participants in our experiment who responded to our call for “adventurous job seekers.” He’s a new grad from Duke with a double major in English and Literature, and he was looking for a job in marketing and publishing. We’re not sure if our experiment helped to ignite his interest in social media, but he’s taken an internship at Ignite Social Media to try his hand at online marketing. Alex recently pinged me to let me know that Ignite is hiring for a couple positions that might be well suited to new college grads. It’s good to know people on the inside.
Social media is becoming a big business, and we’re seeing more and more jobs in social media every day. Ignite Social Media is based out of Cary, NC and they certainly have a good eye for budding social media talent (they hired Alex, a kid who was brave enough to use Facebook ads in his job search). Right now they have three job openings that they announced in more detail on their blog. They’re looking for a Web Copywriter, an Interactive Designer, and an Account Manager. All of these positions require a certain level of expertise, but they can certainly be classified as entry level.
If you’re fired up about working at Ignite, you can send a cover letter and a link to your LinkedIn profile (they really are all about social media) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cover letter is important, so be sure to write it specifically for the job that you’re applying for at Ignite. If you’re applying for the Web Copywriter job, you should include links to 2+ writing samples, and if you’re applying for the Interactive Designer job, you should include links to 2+ design samples. They’ll mark your application as spam (not really, I made that up, but they won’t read it) if you don’t include the cover letter and required samples.
If you have any questions about working at Ignite, we’re sure that Alex and other Ignite employees will be happy to answer them in the comments section. We expect nothing less of a company that specializes in social media.
