Marc Jacobs wants you as social media pro
Wednesday 16 February 2011
US designer Marc Jacobs's CEO Robert Duffy has become a popular Twitter fixture and maybe even a too popular one at that: with more than 90,000 fans following, the brand is now looking for someone to replace Duffy - via Twitter, of course.
"Were looking for someone to come on and take a job heading our twitter acct and social media. Send something clever for a chance at the job!" he tweeted alongside a Valentine's Day goodbye picture showing him and Jacobs with puckered lips.
You read that right: Marc Jacobs wants you to apply per 140-character message. ""Be clever. Smart. Understand our DNA. Say it in one tweet! That is your interview!" Duffy said, later adding: "I just got in trouble from Robert for being arrogant in my tweets. We are being serious. This is a real opportunity."
The company has said that the successful candidate would need to relocate to New York and that the job "pays well." Tweets will be reviewed for the "next few days."
While some brands, such as Dolce & Gabbana, have asked fans to contribute ideas to their collections, this is the first time a prominent fashion label 'interviews' via social media. Send a reply to @MarcJacobsIntl in order to be considered for the job.
