MIDFLORIDA Credit Union is searching for a student between the ages of 17 and 22 to oversee its new social media program as part of its teen initiative. The part-time position offers great pay and the equipment necessary to do the job – a flip video recorder and laptop – and involves writing blogs and posting videos geared towards existing and potential youth account holders. Additionally, the spokesperson will help create and host fun teen-oriented events in the credit union’s service area.
“We want to establish a meaningful connection with the youth in our communities and the best way to accomplish that is through someone their own age,” stated Jill Davis, MIDFLORIDA’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We’re looking for someone who can not only identify with the younger generation, but will be able to post videos and blogs based on financial topics of interest to them.”
Along with plans to revamp and rebrand their existing youth account, MIDFLORIDA is currently developing a new website that will be specifically designed for their younger audience and will be the forum for the new youth spokesperson’s position.
“Our goal with the new website and youth spokesperson is to provide a source of information and guidance to help them achieve financial independence and responsibility,” Davis said.
Interested candidates will need to upload a video, preferably on a financial tip or subject relevant to a young person’s experience with banking, and a writing sample. Candidates may also submit a resume, although not required. To find out more specifics about the contest to win this job, visit www.doyoufitthebill.com. The application deadline is April 30, 2011.
