Wanted: Social Media Superstar

September 16, 2009

As the vice president of communications at the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, a leading funder of journalism and community engagement initiatives, Marc Fest knows a thing or two about the digital tools that are fundamentally reshaping the news industry. Indeed, Marc and his colleagues have been using many of those tools to help guide that transformation and inform their own work.

Now Marc is looking for someone to "supercharge" the foundation's social media efforts from Knight headquarters in Miami. That person will:

  • Play a key role in making Knight the first truly interactive foundation by creating genuine, two-way digital communication, thereby enriching the connectons with the thinkers and innovators the foundation seeks to invest in;
  • Be both an evangelist and player-coach who helps Knight staff and the foundation's community of grantees use social media for the greater good; and
  • Establish the foundation as the leading proponent of community engagement in the digital age and as a leader among its peers in the use of digital resources;

Pretty cool, indeed.

Interested parties should send a resume and links to examples of their best work to Henry Scott at henry@intermediatorgroup.com.
