Need Job? Jst Snd txt Msg! LOL
Teimlo, a British mobile phone content provider, wants to hire a marketer. But here's the catch: Job applications are being accepted only via text message (OK, so that's 160 characters instead of Twitter's 140, but think how much more verbose you can be with those extra 20 characters). Text to JOB.
If you are qualified, sassy, good with words, dynamite at events, Adobe compatible, have working knowledge of mobile and social media, and are a determined multi-tasker and networker we want to hear from you.
You can only send one text. Your message will be acknowledged, so you'll know they got it. Then, if you make it to the shortlist (get it? short list?), you'll get another text message. A final message will be sent to those who don't get the job once the final decision is made. In between, there will be a face-to-face meeting, Reuters reports.
One catch: Tiemlo is based in Usk, in South Wales, and candidates have to live in Britain. They work generally with "faith groups," charities, businesses and educational institutions.
And, if you're wondering what "mobile content" is...
Well strictly, content means anything you download to a mobile phone: messages, wallpapers, ringtones, games and everything in between. But a mobile content portal is a digital marketing tool, helping businesses, charities and other groups to connect with an end user.
Actually, if you're wondering what "mobile content" is, maybe you shouldn't apply for the job.
