I thought it was funny when the Associated Press turned to Craigslist to find its new D.C. Bureau Chief. Well, social media knows no bounds when it comes to the job search, which is why Newsweek (under new management since being sold by the Post Co. earlier this year) has upped the game by going to another 2.0 outlet – Tumblr – to find its new editor. From the post on the always entertaining Newsweek tumblr:
Out: TINA BROWN. In: YOU?
Do *you* have what it takes to be the next editor of NEWSWEEK?
Send us your resumes, pies, LOLcats, booze—and don’t forget to include a special thanks to K. Ryan Jones, the genius behind the official (unofficial) Newsweek editor search video, brought you by NWK Tumblr.
Hey. They are not f–king with you. Get on it.
