    Are any of you guys a bad enough dude to get hired by Hasbro as their future Manager of Global Brand Marketing for Transformers? Do you have the gumption?

    Maybe it's Spastic related or maybe not, but thought it'd be interesting at least. Delete this if it's not worth its own thread. (lol first 'news' post)

    I have a marketing degree but have spent the last 15+ years in retail management. I may submit my resume but I'm certain my lack of experience would be the deal breaker.

    How is this news? Marjor corporations look for new executives all the time.

    If you don't have an irrational hatred for one particular subline, then you're not qualified.

    Probably because this is likely related to the Spastic Incident.

    I highly doubt it. There are many layers that a company goes through when something gets released. The name was issued with a North American mindset and IMHO doesn't warrant a termination of an over site from a slang in the UK. If there is blame to go around this overblown matter it's not just marketing, it's the toy developers, the legal dept and top execs that should share the blame.

    But remember, this is for the position of GLOBAL brand marketing manager. Picking up on UK slang kind of should be part of the job description.

    That was a screw-up, but clearly not worth firing someone over.

    I don't think it's necessarily even the responsibility of someone in that position. They were in charge of brand marketing, not product development.

    I'm going to apply. Why the heck not? My MBA was not in marketing as I have way too many interests, but I did take more marketing electives than anything else.
