Firm seeks ‘Content Shepherd’

Here’s a bit of a job ad found today in the jobs section of The Washington Post from Callahan & Associates.

It may be the best job title ever.

Content Shepherd.

· If our writer’s room was a NASCAR team, then this position would be the pit crew chief.

· If our writer’s room was the Avengers, then this position would be Captain America.

· If our writer’s room was a restaurant kitchen, then this position would be the sous-chef.

· If you get any of those three references, then you’re probably pretty cool to work with :)

It sounds like Callahan & Associates produces content for credit unions. They want applicants with a journalism degree, and mostly this job sounds like an editor, “overseeing writing assignments and guiding completed content out to our audience.” But Content Shepherd is a much better title.

    Link is dead. They probably either filled the position or don’t see our sense of humor. Baa.
