the best job in online marketing is open
How do I know? Because it used to be mine.
(If you’re thinking: “What? This is weird. What happened to Erin?” First: Awww, thanks for your thought bubble. But don’t worry – I’ll still be getting my science on as the Museum’s Director of Business Development.)
Here’s the big news: the Houston Museum of Natural Science is looking for someone to fill my former position, Director of Online Media.
Why is this job amazing?
I’m so glad you asked.
First: you would be working at a science museum. That’s probably all I need to say. But if the idea of walking under dinosaurs and through a forest of stunning minerals doesn’t immediately make you want this job – don’t even bother clicking on the link.
Second: the team is fantastico. I’ve been in the marketing department for the majority of my time at the Museum, and they rock.*
Third: There is so much room for growth. We started with a blog, and the position now encompasses web site management, paid search, email marketing and social media – plus whatever else the brilliant lovelies who apply can dream up.
Finally: you won’t find a better, more enthusiastic, geeky, generous and all-around-awesome community of people to interact with (and get paid for doing it). Getting to know, learn from, and help the people who attend our Flickr meetups and Tweetups, post on our Facebook page and read our blog has been one of the true joys of this position – one that I look forward to continuing, even if I’ll now be paid for doing something entirely different.

PS. What what?! There’s also an open position in Youth Education Sales!
PPS. Being as this is more specifically about HMNS than anything I’ve written previously, I should probably specifically direct you to my MUSEUMS ROCK disclaimer (below, right sidebar), which states that “you shouldn’t take anything posted here – on my personal blog – as an official representation of the views or opinions of the Houston Museum of Natural Science.” That being said – the job is open, and it does absolutely rock. So get on it – you only have until December 14 to apply!
*Pun absolutely intended.
