I’m really excited to be mentoring the team of interns at San Francisco and London-based start-up RolePoint. RolePoint are redefining referrals for the social age, with a mix of innovative technology and infrastructure. A combined technology and consultancy approach. A social business needs to have a social approach from the inside out. This means building a presence across all of the social channels, and a reputation for researched, engaging content. I’m a big believer that to serve a community through your business offering you need to be a part of it.

To make this happen I’m hiring a team of paid interns to develop the social accounts through engagement, learning and content creation. I will be mentoring the team of community DJ’s, in all areas of social and content generation. It is going to be a fun journey, and I’m expecting to learn more than I share. Whilst we work to deadline and a content Calender, the best content and conversation will come from the creator. This isn’t about generating standard press releases or sales content. I’m open to exploring content in any channel and in any format, We are looking for creativity, not conformity.

We are looking for individuals from any background who understand networking, research and content creation in any environment, probably with their own blog and a creative approach to content. if this sounds interesting, you can view the role HERE, and find out about our thinking around social referral HERE. The founders are active in the business and will have close involvement with the team. We all lead busy lives, and will not always be available, that’s why we need people who work on their own initiative. We treat people like grown ups because when people are treated that way, that’s how they behave. We are open to people looking to understand how a start up works in order to do it themselves, (the founders are happy to mentor in this), for someone looking to learn the social world in order to launch a career elsewhere, or looking to join the RolePoint team. This is a genuine internship, where the commitment cuts both ways.

To apply, I’m not looking for a CV or an application, I’m looking for a blog post or video in any format on one of the three topics:

> Changing campus recruiting

> Reward and recognition in the social generation

> Game mechanics for hiring

You can mail me your submission in any channel, I’m easy to find, and if we use your submission then we will pay you for it and set up a meeting. All content will be posted in your own name, we don’t believe in ghosts! I’m excited to see your work, and to be a part of a great team.
