After browsing the New York Times online the other day, I came across the headline, “Tweeting Becomes a Summer Job Opportunity.” The article is more so a job posting for Pizza Hut, in which the job title states: “Summer Twintern.”
The Twintern will “be our social media journalist, chronicling in 140 characters or less what’s going on at Pizza Hut,” said Bob Kraut, the vice president for marketing communications at the company.
There’s even mention of the Domino’s Pizza YouTube video that went viral on the web. (Which was a public relations crisis!)
Although the posting is for an internship, I think its interesting to note that even in this tough economy, companies and businesses realize the importance of social media. Frankly, I think this is great news, imagine all the awesome places you could possibly be a Twintern!
Are you interested? Well you’ll have to re-locate to Dallas, TX this summer, but go for it! Go to http://www.pizzahut.com to apply!
