The Most Sought After Job in Emerging Media

Let me get this out the way. I think I have a man crush on Best Buy Chief Marketing Officer Barry Judge. You’ll remember him from his poetic and humble video about how marketing is changing, and how Best Buy is changing with it (see below).

Now he’s inviting people, via his blog BarryJudge to help define a job description for his senior emerging media marketing position. His followers, which include some of the heavy hitters of social media, are not only helping him with his HR and social-media design for free… they’re making this job the most sought-after one on the web.

May the best woman or man win… whether they need a graduate degree or not.

  1. What a brilliant idea! It’s like having an advisory group that includes the whole world… while positioning your company as extremely forward-thinking.

    Are you gonna apply?

  2. They tried to charge me a 15% restocking fee on a digital camera I bought. I took it home, realised it really wasn’t what I expected it to be, brought it back next day and was slammed with a 15% fee ( I didn’t actually end up paying it.) I was shocked cause I didn’t even know they had started this policy, but I think by me being very calm and stating to the salesperson that I will never buy anything where I had to worry about a restocking fee from there again she didn’t end up charging me. The true fact is though, now I won’t buy anything from there cause I will have that worry in the back of my mind.

    Nalts, maybe I should rant about this on your new video, no better yet, just tell the new Sr. marketing person that’s a bad idea!

  3. You know, I’d take it up the ass every day if it meant I could win big in the lottery. But only over 50 million dollars. Because, you know, 40 million just doesn’t go as far these days as it used to.

    I don’t know why I wrote that. Oh wait, yes I do. No meds today.
