Announcement | MCCSM Help Wanted
Three weeks ago today we announced formation of the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media. We believe our Mayo Clinic leaders' vision for the center is a compelling one, and the response has been overwhelming, as our News page indicates.
This week we are posting eight new full-time positions on our Jobs at Mayo Clinic site, seeking staff members to help bring that vision to fruition. Victor Montori, M.D., will be our medical director, and I will serve as director for the center. We will be building upon our existing syndication/social media team by adding:
- A Public Affairs manager, providing day-to-day leadership and mentorship, and serving a coordinating role between the syndicated Medical Edge content and the social platforms. Update: This position is now filled.
- Three Public Affairs consultants, one based at each of our three campuses. Their primary focus will be on-site strategic consultation and training for Mayo staff and business units. They also will have individual specialties, such as video, Spanish-language content development and social networking and adult learning/training. Their role will be both internal and external; helping our staff use the tools and platforms the center is developing to accomplish Mayo’s business objectives. Update: The Arizona position is now posted. Click here to learn more or apply.
- Two Public Affairs associates, based in Rochester, will provide hands-on support for enterprise-level social media initiatives as well as implementation/start-up assistance to groups within Mayo launching their own social media projects. Update: These positions also have been filled.
- Two administrative assistants will provide support for the center. Update: Positions are filled.
We're excited at the opportunity to build something significant that can make a difference not just at Mayo Clinic, but that also can contribute to health and health care globally. Specific qualifications for each position are listed on the Jobs at Mayo Clinic site. That's where you can apply.
If you're personally not able to relocate to the Phoenix, Jacksonville or Rochester areas, I hope you will help spread the word about these positions through your networks via Facebook or Twitter (there's a button below you can use to tweet it.)
And even though it's a bit "old school," please feel free to send this post via email to friends you think might be good candidates for, and interested in, one of the positions.
