A JoeSchmidt.com Staff Update

Posted on September 28, 2006 at 01:15 AM

Big news happening here at JoeSchmidt.com! For quite sometime we have been trying to quietly fill a much needed position here. Our search has taken us far and wide to find the perfect candidate to be the Marketing Director here at JoeSchmidt.com. What we were looking for is someone that is hard working and knowledgeable to help take this blog to the next level.

Now I've been all over Craigslist, LinkedIn and other various social networking/job sites to hopefully fill the position, but we never really found any truly qualified candidates.

But I am happy to announce that the search is over.

We were alerted of the prospective "candidate" back in May and about a month ago we sat down to "interview" them. Everything so far is great. Though there wasn't much communication during our "video conference". I think the connection might have been shaky as all we could hear was a rhythmic beating sound. I grabbed a screen shot from the meeting so everyone could see the new hire for themselves:

Anyway, it looks like the new hire will start sometime in mid January and we couldn't be more happy. The head of the our legal department is hoping that the new hire is female and is named Missy. That way he can say,"Get over here Missy!" or "Get out of my room Missy!". Since this blog is an equal opportunity employer, the question of whether the new "hire" is male or female never came up as that would be an illegal question to ask. We just hope he/she has 10 fingers, 10 toes, and is healthy so they are able to contribute to the team.

We are going to stay in touch over the next 3 and a half months by having bi-weekly visits. And we may even have the chance to have another "video conference". Hopefully the connection will be a little better so we have the chance to communicate next time.

Congratulations to my wife for "referring" the new hire. I think we'll have to work out some kind of employee referral bonus program as I'm sure we will have another "position" to fill in the next couple of years.
