The election is so last week. We’ve moved on to the fiscal cliff and preparing for the next Congressional session. AARP’s looking for a smart, savvy social/digital media strategist to help us make sure that Social Security and Medicare are strong for today’s retirees and generations to come.
So, if you just finished winning [insert candidate]’s race, pull yourself off your celebratory beach vacation and apply to join one of the best social teams inside the Beltway.
Must be able to:
- Wow us with a strategic social media campaign that you directed that achieved your goals.
- Build online campaigns that drive offline action.
