Pizza Hut will soon find out whether the ability to craft a convincing 140 character tweet translates to a successful 140 second job interview. To find the perfect candidate for its social media and digital advertising position, which it calls ‘Manager of Digital Greatness,’ Pizza Hut is going to hold 140 second interviews at SXSW on March 10th.
The job will be based at the company’s headquarters in Plano, Texas. By scouting at SXSW, Pizza Hut is targeting a relevant audience, as those who attend the conference tend to be tapped in to the new trends.
Those who visit Pizza Hut at the Austin Hilton on Sunday from 1-5 pm will get the chance to briefly tell them why they should be the newest member of the Pizza Hut social squad. Mashable notes that the company believes people who can sell themselves in 140 seconds should be good at selling the company in 140 characters on Twitter.
