I was extremely hesitant to blog a job posting here on the BEAN, then I thought about it and said - what the heck, why not - it is probably the best place to find the right person. BEA is looking for a Community & Conference Coordinator - it is a part time position based in our Norwalk, CT offices - 20 hours/week. This position will oversee BEA's social media presence and direct the strategy for each platform BEA has a presence on. This position will also program the conference sessions for the Book Bloggers Convention. The expectation for the person coming into this position is you will know more about social media than we currently do on BEA. We are okay, but I feel we leave a lot of opportunities on the table because we don't have a dedicated focus. We want this person to develop the strategy for how BEA engages and intergrates all the various platforms we use and identify the ones we should be using.
You can e-mail me a cover letter and a resume which I will forward to my Human Resources dept. We prefer to have a phone interview first to make sure we are as much a fit for your goals as you are a fit for the position. It is a test to see if you can find my e-mail on the BEA site, the odds are if that is too much of a challenge - then this might not be the right job for you.
