‘STUNT’ OF THE DAY: WOMAN IN LINE FOR £50K JOB AFTER TWITTER PLEA

Sarah Douglas

When I first heard about this I thought it was a random individual who had been struggling financially and had been unemployed for sometime. But it turns out the “random” lives in one of the wealthiest and affluent areas in London (Notting Hill), has links to the media industry and is dating Harry Cole (who she supposedly met on Twitter) a journalist and contributing editor to popular political magazine The Spectator.

A woman who found her boyfriend on Twitter is now a candidate for a £50,000-a-year job after tweeting for work.

Sarah Douglas put out a 140-character plea to possible employers after she struggled to find a job through conventional applications.

Ms Douglas, 23, from Notting Hill, was amazed by the response when she was re-tweeted hundreds of times and her name started trending.

She said: “I was getting a bit depressed with my search for work and put something on Twitter on the spur of the moment. I am taken aback by the response but I guess if you can find a boyfriend on Twitter there is no reason why you can’t find a job on Twitter, too.”

Her message read: “Dear Twitter, I am looking for a job. I’ve got experience as a PA, editorial assistant, picture researcher & junior PR. Can anyone help?”

She said she would take any position as long as she was earning £18,000 a year or more, adding: “Basically happy to do absolutely anything and I am very good at telling people you’re in a meeting so you don’t have to talk to them.”

Within hours she had a dozen interviews lined up. Among those who responded was Stuart McSorley, chairman of Bishopsgate-based BP2M Holding Group, a consultancy company and investment group. Continue Reading..

Hmmmm……… This story sounds a little suspect. It wouldn’t surprise me if it turns out that old Sarah here works for Twitter’s publicity and marketing department.
