Ten 140-Character Job Openings

Think you could sum up your job description in 140 characters?

Recently, the Wisconsin Law Journal posted a job opening for a full-time reporter on, and used just 134 characters to do so.

In the same spirit of brevity, SHIFT Communications started compiling an entire page of tweet-length job listings, both at the agency itself and its clients.

First of all, here’s the Wisconsin Law Journal job listing, per PR Daily:

“If you’re a reporter who asks ‘Why?’ more often than a 5-year-old, get in touch with me right away at”

And, in a similar vein, here are ten 140-character job openings for your reading (and possibly applying) pleasure:
