Enjoy all that e-mail you get from Organizing for America? Well, get ready to get more.
The successor to President Obama's campaign group, now a project of the Democratic National Committee, is expanding its online outreach efforts, according to a Democratic official and an advertisement posted on the jobs board at MediaBistro.com.
The notice, posted more than a week ago, seeks full-time "Email campaigners" based in Washington, D.C.; the campaigners will be "responsible for planning, writing, and executing grassroots campaigns to advance the President's agenda for change."
"Campaigns will primarily be driven through email and web tools and use fundraising, citizen advocacy, and local organizing to achieve our goals," the ad said.
The move appears to be part of a broader effort by the White House and Democrats to ramp up messaging efforts.
Job qualifications include writing that is "strong, sharp, and personable"; "Passionate about engaging millions of Americans in advancing President Obama's agenda and changing the country; and "Familiarity with HTML and/or online organizing platforms."
The group is also hiring a "social networks manager," according to TechPresident.com, "responsible for maintaining the Democratic Party and Organizing for America accounts on all social networks (such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace accounts, etc.) ."
