News Post: Hasbro Job Opportunity - Manager, Global Brand Franchise Marketing For Transformers
Is this Warden's job? Is he leaving?
That is what I'm in school for right now...
And I applied...
Would the perks include free Transformers
Anyone else bothered with how they aren't just promoting internally?
Hiring a random outsider to suddenly run the TF Global brand? Sorry, but that explains a lot of the problems with TFs... the core competencies are generic and not at all tailored to the specific product or category. You end up with someone who is good at marketing, but not necessarily good at marketing TFs - sometimes it works out; other times, it silently hemorrhages the company.
Marketing? Cause I don't recall a "Global Brand Marketing" degree program! Sorry, but as a graduate of marketing, I have to forewarn you: your only future is SALES. There are virtually NO entry-level marketing jobs. And since Hasbro is clearly NOT promoting from within, the trend continues.
Agreed, looks like a great opportunity.
From his LinkedIn, Warden is a Design Manager: https://www.linkedin.com/in/john-warden-02643013
his title = Toy Design Manager in the Fruiticus Designer Desk video:
The program I'm in is Business Management, with a course in Marketing. I may not be qualified by Hasbro's standards but I know the brand and have a good idea what the fans like and don't like. Something I mentioned in my cover letter.
Hasbro, don't hire this guy
The candidate they are looking for just have years of experience bringing merchandise from ideas to packaged foods in a global scale. None of us here are qualified. If we were, we'd already be doing it.
"By the way, does anyone aboard know how to fly a plane?"
What it definitely comes down to.
So, where do I sign up?
Applied for the position just for shits and giggles.
well actually sales and marketing is pretty much the same thing in any company, for example, the company that i'm working for, dont have a marketing team... but they have a sales team, but they arent actually sales person but rather doing marketing stuff like looking at sales figure, figuring out the best way to sell the company's new product and talk to any company that might be interested..
I should probably get a job one of these days
