PRNewser readers: do you want perhaps the most high profile social media job in all of the land? Then apply to be “Social Networks Manager” — aka “Barak Obama‘s Twitterer” — at the Democratic National Committee.

Via The Wall Street Journal:

The Democratic National Committee’s “social networks manager” job description says the position entails maintaining the President’s accounts on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.

Mia Cambronero, who currently holds the job, “will be stepping down from my infamous role as ‘Barack Obama‘s twitterer,’” she said in an email message posted to a listserv. “We’re looking for someone who is available to start immediately.”

The new hire will work closely with the rest of the new media department to execute grassroots campaigns to advance the President’s agenda for change, the listing says. Among the qualifications sought: “Ready to work hard; this isn’t a 9-5 sort of job.”
