Is it me, or does this new ad for a communication manager at Sprint leave you puzzling over what drug combination its writer was taking?
My favorite items:
• "Manage 'rolling thunder' activities, including managing content/keeping current Elevator Speeches."
• "Secure speaking engagements for, at a minimum, the senior vice president of HR. Attempt to secure speaking engagements for members of the HR leadership team."
• "Work with other members of Sprint's public relations department to ensure the people effort is adequately represented in their media pitches on various topics."
And this concluding paragraph:
At Sprint, we're more than just talk. We are leading the way with cost-cutting technology, like the first 4G network in the United States and our unmatched push-to-talk service. What will you add to the list? Bring your energy, ideas and the uniqueness that makes you who you are. Own your career at Sprint and we'll help you achieve your goals. Raise your hand, send your resume, step up and do work that matters.
(Like getting those douche bags in PR do pitch more stories about HR!)
Sometimes the bed is on fire before you lie down on it.
