Agency Spy, in its job listing section, has a doozy… Draft'/FCB Chicago is looking to hire a "Social Media Platform Manager." Obviously, no one in the thousands they have laid off was qualified for the position. As I said in a comment on Agency Spy…. The job of the "Social Media Platform Manager" is to make sure the people laid off have plenty of boxes for their shit. That they haven't stolen stationary supplies, and that they haven't written graffiti all over the place about management being a bunch of fucktards. Then, when they've done all that to Larry's satisfaction... They get to spend some time in the corner gym before being fucking laid-off! If you really want an excuse to start boozing early, read the full job description. The best bit is at the end… About our company… Launched in mid-2006, Draft/FCB is a new breed of agency the first global, behavior-based, holistic marketing communications organization operating against a single P&L, one which places an equal emphasis on creativity and accountability. It’s enough to make you fucking weep!
And they give you a hat on the way out!
