Applying for Pabst’s Social Media Community Manager

Recently, the lovely people at America’s largest American owned brewery, Pabst Brewing Company posted a job opening as Social Media Community Manager in Los Angeles.

Naturally, after spotting this, I polished up my resume and wrote a concise, spirited cover letter and sent it off through the tubes for consideration.

Afterwards, I sent a tweet to @PBR_USA, the official Twitter for Pabst Blue Ribbon, the company’s flagship brand, letting them know I applied and was excited for the opportunity.

Then, a couple days later I thought, wait, I should really push this through social media channels. I avidly use Facebook and Twitter, in both my private life — which ends up being populated by goofy things I think about, or chronicles of what my beautiful wife Sarah is watching on TV behind me — and as an ambassador for Ice Cream Man. Within minutes I had set up a Facebook page encouraging people to support my quest for this job, started using a custom hashtag #Gooch4PBR on Twitter and registered Gooch4PBR.com to redirect to the Facebook page.

My thoughts were simple: If this is a job managing social media, why not use social media to show how eminently qualified I was?

Well, here I am, hopefully things will work out, it absolutely is a perfect fit for myself and for Pabst, a brand I absolutely love and can attest for.

  1. I understand that using America twice so quickly reads poorly, but I’m keeping it. USA!

  2. UPDATE: I did not get the job. I am still on the hunt however. If you or someone you know has any leads feel free to let me know!

  3. Likaså, ju mer du kommer att vinna. Vi har inte en seger för vädret ledstjärna bonus just nu, men om tre av dem var på denna rad, skulle det vara en stor kartong.
    RedBet reserverar sig rätten att neka bonus till alla kunder och / eller att avbryta de säljfrämjande freespins på denna brittiska
    online casino marknaden med sitt fantastiska nyår främjande hela månaden lång.
