5 New Multiplatform Publishing Job Descriptions

Using these multiplatform publishing job descriptions will help you find the right candidates for your publication

In order to succeed online, publishers need to have staff members that understand the digital evolution. When operated with precision and passion, a Mequoda System can turn a special-interest content-driven publication into a successful multiplatform publishing empire.

However, as this system constantly needs revaluation it is important to find a staff that has an interest in the process and can effectively serve it.

A significant portion of our consulting strategy relies on properly staffing an organization. If you choose the wrong staff members, or don’t properly teach your current staff about digital strategies, you are sure to not achieve maximum profitability and enterprise value, and may even fail online.

In the past we’ve shared job descriptions important to digital publishing success, but we’ve recently compiled a new collection of job descriptions for you to bookmark and use when you need them.

Below we have actual job descriptions used by major publishers who are running Mequoda Method systems.jobs

Having the right job description is an important first step to assembling the right team.  Making sure you have the right organizational structure and that the team has complementary communication and work styles is critically important.   We find using a personality profile instrument (we use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or MBTI) is helpful in assessing an organization’s needs and a candidate’s fit with those needs.  If you are looking to hire the most effective team for your multiplatform publishing company, I’d like to work with you and make that happen.
