Some of you may remember a few months back when I asked for submissions for a new position we were creating at Monk. Specifically, I was looking for a social media project coordinator and you, my friends, did not disappoint.
We had more submissions than I expected, which is always a good problem to have. Seems there’s quite the interest in social media and marketing. I wanted to give you an update on that position and who we ended up hiring for it. (Just to let you know, we’re still looking for someone to fill another position. More on this towards the bottom).
As I was sifting through the 140-character applications, I noticed a name on the list I wasn’t expecting.
Jodi Stevens was someone I knew from my days as a pastor. She was a part of the ministry I led and ran in some of the same circles here in Des Moines. Jodi’s also a UNI grad, so our connections branched into our college friends as well.
She mentioned that this was a position she’d be interested in for a number of reasons. Suffice to say, I knew Jodi as a sharp, bright marketing professional, so instantly I thought, “we need to figure out a way to get her on board.”
We talked and ended up shifting the position to include more than originally intended. As a company, we had needs in developing our own social media presence as well as helping other organizations do the same. As the Communications Director, I knew that we also had some holes to fill in our marketing strategy.
I think you see where this is going, but let me spell it out: Jodi is now the Marketing Project Coordinator for MonkDev. Alongside some social media responsibilities, she will be driving a large portion of our marketing strategy. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
I could not be more thrilled to have Jodi on board and functioning in this capacity. I know not everyone who reads this blog is a person of faith, but I’d be lying if I said this didn’t feel providential. We had a need, she had a need, and those needs, as distinct as they were, matched up. Almost perfectly.
But wait! There’s more.
While I have your attention, I wanted to reach out again to see if anyone would be interested in a new role, a Marketing Administrative Assistant.
Let me be up front with the particulars:
- This will be perfect for a college student/intern, or anyone looking to get their foot in the door with digital marketing.
- You’ll get your hands dirty. Expect to help build while executing assigned tasks.
- My preference is Des Moines-based folks. You’ll be coordinating meetings, tasks, and keeping the marketing team on track. I’m open to remote workers (as always), but you’ll have to be really good
- This is a non-paid position. As I mentioned before, if you have internship credits you need to fulfill, this would be a perfect scenario.
- If this sounds like your cup of tea, please fill out the short form below. I’ll be in touch soon, as we’d like to bring someone on board quickly.
You are an amazing community and I consider it an honor to bring you into the fold whenever possible. We’ve got a lot of work to do. We’ve got places to go, people to see. Take a second consider joining us, wouldn’t you?
