Back in the day when you stumbled across a dream job on offer you would update and print off your resume and dust off your portfolio of accomplishments and submit an application. Hoping and praying you would somehow stand out from the crowd and get a shot at an interview.
Today job applications are looking a bit different for cutting edge social media junkies. Remember the ‘best job in the world’ campaign where 1000′s submitted video ‘resumes’ to try and get sellected for an amazing job on the Great Barrier Reef. What an amazing marketing ploy! Only one person got the job but thousands got educated about this amazing tourist destination amidst a dying tourist economy.
So this past week I’ve been inundated by tweets from a passionate entrepreneur who wants a dream job. This artist, wine and fine foods connoisseur… Avid blogger… Twitterer… Has submitted a video app for an amazing job working with Murphy-Goode Winery in Sonoma County Wine Country. They are looking for someone who really knows how to use Web 2.0 and Facebook and blogs and social media and YouTube and all sorts of good stuff like that — to tell the world about their wines and where they live: the Sonoma County Wine Country. Check it out here! Randy Elrod would nail this job and needs our help getting him there. He’s currently #4 out of like over 900 applications!
So all you need to do…
This is where you come in. Please take 70 seconds to complete these four simple steps:
1. Watch Randy’s very cool video on the Murphy-Goode web site.
2. Enter your email address to vote for Randy.
