I spotted this post on the Digital Squeeze today, which links to a job posting on Craigslist:

This Marketing Manager is responsible for leading the companyís efforts in developing and managing its divisional blog. He / she will work with cross-functional teams including Creative Services, Product Management, Engineering, Corporate Communications and Legal to achieve objectives in launching and managing the divisionís first blog.

Huh. A "blogmaster" is a new one to my ears.

If you wanna use my name as a referral, feel free. :-)

Send your resume to amyp@yahoo-inc.com and let me know if you've got questions about working at Yahoo. Granted, I work in Sunnyvale, but how different can it be? (... Jeremy braces for email from coworkers down south about how they don't have a cafeteria or free coffee or whatever ...)

Jeremy,
Thanks for picking this up. As noted I would love to help 'navigate' the digital waters with you... Guess it's all up to Amy's reaction to my resume and this unique blogging approach in order to stand out from the crowd of worthy candidates.

Very much appreciated!
Matt

Jeremy,

No need to brace for email complaining about the amenities we don't have down here in the South of the state. We are moving shortly from Pasadena to Burbank and will have a cafeteria, gym, free coffee, etc. And real cubicles instead of dotcom shared desks! Basically, a copy of the Sunnyvale campus.

Cheers,
Ross

Oooh... Very tempting. Seriously tempting in fact. If it didn't require being onsite full-time (curious as to why that is - guessing for organizational cohesiveness) I'd drop them an email to chat about it.

The problem with really loving working at your own projects full-time is that everything else that would otherwise be an absolute dream job doesn't grab you quite as hard as it used to...

Ah well, I think I'll drop Amy an email and just see if we can chat about the position.

Hey, we get free coffee down here. And not just free coffee, but free Diet Coke /with Splenda/!

Well, except the cubicles will be lower than the ones in Sunnyvale. Why, I'm not sure, but I'm guessing so the folks in Sunnyvale can look down on us. ;-)

I like that title Blogmaster a lot, a webmaster with no need for technical skills :)

I got contacted last week by that Yahoo! Search Marketing team...

"Sean - Are you talking to anyone at Yahoo Search Marketing Engineering (formerly Overture)in Pasadena? Found your info and wanted to chat about some projects we have. Thoughts?
Jeremy Langhans"

If this had been Jeremy Zawodny contacting me, I may have actually replied! =p

Is that craigslist ad real? lol... "blogmaster" sounds almost as bad as the Schematic 'Client-side Engineer' Job Ad where it says...

"Is AJAX more than just a cleaning product to you? Did the most recent release of sIFR bring joy to your heart?"

*barf*

which southern california office do you mean? Yahoo has offices in Pasadena (soon to be Burbank), Santa Monica, and San Diego. I work in the Santa Monica office and I can tell you we have free coffee (Tully's even!) and other goodies.
