Does anyone else find themselves utterly confused by job descriptions and the long list of qualifications and certifications needed?
In one of my group messages, a friend sent me a screenshot for a Marketing/Social Media Manager position specifically targeting TikTok, where they seem to be delving into affiliate marketing. The catch? They're asking for 10 years of experience, with a preference for an MBA or J.D. (law degree*), expertise in graphic design, video editing, content writing (not copywriting), SEO, web design, Wordpress, and a slew of other platform expertise. What? TikTok hasn't even been around for a decade! Who's going to law school to manage social media? To top it off, the salary range was $60K - $80K. Someone skilled in social media is called an influencer and works for themselves making six figures plus!
These companies seem completely out of touch with reality!
(*The law degree was added as a joke because why not? )
