White House Communications Director Search Gets Professional Help

San Francisco, CA – August 4, 2017 – HireMojo, Inc., the Hiring Automation Platform ™ company, today announced that it has initiated a professional search for the next White House Communications Director.

In an unprecedented move, HireMojo is supporting the effort to fill the White House Communications Director opening as part of its civic duty in an unofficial capacity.  “We view this effort more as building a pipeline of candidates rather than making a single hire.” clarified John Younger, HireMojo’s CEO.  “We appreciate that the average tenure of someone in this role is three months, so our mission is to identify the next 14 people who will be hired for the remainder of this President’s term.  He deserves only the BEST candidates.”

“The impact these people will have is tremendous.” emphasized Kelly Konis, President of Konis Consulting, an international marketing and communications firm. (www.kellykonis.com)  “It is no small feat to manage the communications strategy for a group that embraces dissention, diversity of statements around the same topic and frequent 140 character surprises.  I applaud HireMojo’s efforts to support the White House and America, and their commitment to fuel the daily comedic relief from the White House upon which so many people rely!” 

“I applaud our President for moving the role of Communications Director onto the quarter system like so many of this great nation’s finest institutions.”  said Cal McAllister, Co-Founder and CEO of Wexley School for Girls, the best advertising agency in the solar system. (www.wexley.com)  “Giving tenured individuals several weeks of proselytizing at the lectern, then months and months to publish where they really make their money is genius from a genius. It takes a deep bench, which is why John and his A team at HireMojo are perfect for the task. Trust me, you’re going to love it.”

Title: White House Communications Director – Master of Weaving Tales and Covering Tracks
Job #: WHCommDir3-14

To apply, refer or learn more go to: http://www.hiremojo.com/whitehouse

As a senior staff member for the President of the United States (#POTUS), step into the experience of a lifetime!  Established in January 1969 during the Nixon administration, the roots for this job are deeply planted in making lemonade out of lemons.  One of your most distinguishing characteristics throughout your career is your uncanny ability to make a big impact within the first three months of your employment.  This will be especially important working for this #POTUS since that will likely be the entire duration of your tenure.

 

Very few jobs carry the visibility, excitement and sheer joy of developing and promoting the agenda of this President, including leading the White House media campaigns.   Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to practice your poker face when confronted with blatant “alternate truths”, conflicting research and Presidential tweets negating your statements.  After this assignment, you will be ready for the World Series of Poker (WSOP). 

You are going to love this job because you’ll:

  • Sit in a cushy West Wing office, but it’s encouraged that you leave your personal effects at home
  • Oversee the White House Press Secretary and the height of the trees and shrubs around the White House
  • Craft Presidential speeches with plenty of room in the margins for Presidential changes without notice
  • Communicate the President’s voice and vision clearly and successfully, whatever that may be week to week or day to day
  • Meet with many wonderful attorneys from several government agencies and private sector firms
  • Get clear direction by reading the President’s tweets from the previous night

The core qualifications you need include:

  • Managing outsourced, off-shore "communications" teams based in Russia
  • Directing crisis management teams and efforts
  • Displaying verbal abuse, preferably toward CNN and the fake news media
  • Staying calm even in the face of laughable conflicting statements from the White House staff
  • Being fluent in Russian
  • Love for SPIN

If you feel constrained when asked to provide a coherent communications strategy, then this is the perfect career bending opportunity for you!

The United States Federal Government offers competitive salary and benefits. In addition to completing this application, the hiring process includes being selected by the President of the United States.
