Social Recruiting Coordinator Job Profile: Wunderland

Today, I stumbled on a job posted on by Wunderland, based in Chicago. The title is for a Social Recruiting Coordinator.

A few weeks ago, I kinda generated a suggested job description for a possible future job title within the Social Recruiting space.

While my proposed JD had a stronger tilt towards a traditional HR & Recruiting job profile, what I saw posted by Wunderland leans more towards Social Media, and maybe demonstrates more fun and excitement within. Mind you, they hire creative people and marketing talent, in the Chicago area.

I have reproduced the job here, also as a guide for people looking for relevant profiles for in-house Social Recruiting candidates.
