About the Episode

In this special bonus episode of I Wanna Work There, Enrollify host Eddie Francis chats with Jaime Hunt about her LinkedIn post calling attention to the low salary range of a marketing and communications position with very demanding, and maybe even unrealistic, expectations. And it triggered quite the reaction from other LinkedIn users. Eddie and Jaime, with their candid charm, dissect the job listing, the implications of such positions on the industry and professionals navigating their careers, and how all of it impacts institutions’ employer brands.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Challenge of Being a "Marketing Unicorn": Discussion on the unrealistic expectations set for positions requiring a broad set of skills ranging from PR to event management.
  • Salary Expectations vs. Reality: A critical look at how low salary offerings contrast sharply with the high demands of certain roles in higher education marketing.
  • Unpacking Job Descriptions: Analysis of how job descriptions may mislead or intimidate potential applicants by demanding an extensive array of skills and competencies.

Guest Name: Jaime Hunt, host of Confessions of a Higher Ed CMO
