Job Openings at World Vital Records

We will be officially posting some officially worded job openings at World Vital Records soon, but sometimes I think, why not blog about them, even before they are fully baked? One of my blog readers might be perfect for one of these spots or know the right person. We might be able to hire the right applicant, even before getting the job openings listed formally on our company web site.

Here are a few positions that we will be recruiting in the coming days/weeks:

Entry Level SEO/Marketing Position

An entrepreneur running a successful company asked me to recruit someone from my BYU internet marketing classes to work for him. I told him I\’d blog about the opportunity. So here it is:

SEO/Marketing position. This would involve working with their main screen-scraper web site, as
well as their ScrapbookFinds meta-search
engine. Starting pay will be $11-15 per hour, with bonuses as progress

Team Formation Summit for Worldhistory.com

Last year I wrote in Connect magazine that I would be trying a grand experiment in team building. I would be trying an idea I got from The Entrepreneur\’s Manual, a very popular book for entrepreneurs published in 1997. I would hold a 2-day retreat with a couple dozen executives to brainstorm, network, plan, and then vote on the Founders Team for Worldhistory.com.

What Motivates Me To Be Foolish

No company likes anyone to break news for them. Companies like to control their own news and get their own press coverage. The blogosphere is upsetting to corporate executives everywhere. Many bloggers have lost their jobs over what they have written. It\’s an interesting time.

Against that backdrop, I felt compelled the other day to mention that MyFamily had layoffs and no media (and only 1 blogger) had reported it.
