Posting for my former employer. This was my job, and I'm happy to answer any questions about it.
Hamilton College seeks a creative and savvy communications professional to manage the institution’s social media presence through well-conceived and carefully crafted content, including the effective and strategic use of video, audio, email and various mobile platforms and operating systems. Not only will the director of social media oversee College social media properties, including directing and educating others on campus in the use of social media to represent Hamilton, but he/she will devise systems to evaluate and report on the effectiveness of all electronic communications in addressing the needs of the College’s various audiences. The successful candidate will report to the assistant vice president for communications.
He/She must also appreciate environmental forces affecting higher education, as well as important characteristics of the target audiences, including their levels of knowledge about the College. Although the College’s director of web services will retain responsibility for the technology needed to support Hamilton’s Internet presence, the director of social media will still need to have experience using standard web tools and software for creating web-based materials. Time management and strong interpersonal skills are also required.

Interested applicants should send a resume, letter of interest and contact information for three professional references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Consideration of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
