    You know the guy who gets this is going to have some sort of fan boy in him. This could be good. :)

    In a perfect world, yes :tongue: 
    In our world the job will probably go to some random guy with marketing experience.
    A fanboy thinks with his heart and his memories, a Sr. Director of global brand marketing for transformers will have to think with the company's wallet.

    Hasbro would never hire a fan, it makes too much sense. They need to clean house at Hasblo, everyone who's been a position of authority for the last 7 years.

    Every toy designer and cartoon creator is a fan boy these days. The fans boys of the 80's have gone grown up and now are getting jobs.

    We're not talking about a toy designer or a cartoon creator here though. Marketing management is a different beast.

    Yes but my point is that we know a lot of Sr. positions in the TF branch of Hasbro are held by hardcore fan boys. Why would this be any different?

    This is just the TF branch of Hasbro not all of Habsro.

    My bottom line is that it is not hard to believe that there are fanboys out there that are more than qualified for this job. Is it so hard to believe that at least one will apply and maybe get the job?

    It will most likely go to..
    a) a different Hasbro Senior Director or..
    b) a Director of Global Brand Marketing & Strategy for [insert any other product name here (likely to be another toy brand but not necessarily from Hasbro)].

    I'd rather that Transformers were my hobby than my job. I get the feeling that if I lived and breathed Transformers for 12 hours a day, 5 days a week I would get bored VERY quickly.

    If they're advertising the job outside of Hasbro though, odds are they want someone from the outside and not someone within Hasbro itself.

    Not necessarily. Sometimes corporations have to advertise jobs to applicants outside of the company in order to comply with competition laws or their own internal charter/structure/red tape.

    And to be a Global Brand Marketing for a toyline,it may not be necessary he/she must be a fan for the toyline,as long as he/she has the capability to promote the toyline, that person will be suited for the job.
