THE INTERNAL COMMS STRATEGIST
Identifiable by their hands-free headset and their ability to look like a LinkedIn profile photo at all times, the internal comms strategist is always busybusyverybusy – despite their whole job seemingly being about organising people’s birthday cakes.
MOST LIKELY TO SAY “Just wanted to reach out about dinner on Saturday! Shall we check in with the key stakeholders and circle back by EOP?”
WANT TO JOIN THEM? Nobody trusts a comms person who doesn’t know how to protect their own brand, so be sure your online image is carefully curated. And internal comms strategists should know everything about their company: Google-search the places you’d like to work, so you’re aware of everything about them. Finally, get ahead with Google Hire (touted as the new LinkedIn) and read VOICE, the online magazine from the Institute of Internal Communication (Voice.ioic.org. uk). Then reach out and touch base.
