5732: Seeking Jackass-Of-All-Trades.
This job listing actually runs about three times longer than what’s depicted. It demonstrates how “New Media” has created new standards, new expectations and new title definitions. A Senior Creative Director is expected to literally do all the creative work, generate timelines and write briefs. Plus, you’ll handle web design, sales materials, presentations, video production, animation, interactive design and print work. This is not a manager position—unless you call your subordinates me, myself and I. Oh, and you can expect to be paid $30-45 per hour. Welcome to the New Job Market.
