  1. Quite a lengthy post. Can you pl explain, “Also he would handle the latest social media trendy tasks.”?
    In my opinion, social media jobs are not for mere social media butterflies. They are meant only for already established influencers. I came to this conclusion after reading various expectations of social media job providers. People with excellent writing skills who can turn the eyes of others with catchy subject line alone will be hired. Applicants should also show deep reach of their social media presence.
