The House Majority at the Hawaii State Legislature has put out the call, on its blog no less, for a full-time blogger. Well, an “assistant communications director” with others duties as assigned, no doubt, but still… House Communications Director Georgette Deemer is looking for someone who loves to write.
“Not just the usual press releases, media advisories, opinion pieces, etc. but also as a voice of and contributor to this blog,” Deemer says. “An artistic eye for capturing the sights and personalities of the legislature through digital photography will be appreciated.”
Not only is it a full-time position, but it’s year-round as well, rather than the few months the Legislature is in session. Though the salary is “about $40,000,” it comes with the state’s excellent benefits and health insurance plan. You could do a lot worse for a communications job, and if you love the web and blogging, the position could be worth fighting for.
Interested? Send Deemer a cover letter and resume by November 16. She hopes to have someone in place by the holidays, to give the freshly minted House blogger a few weeks in the Capitol before the opening gavel falls.
