THE IN­TER­NAL COMMS STRATE­GIST

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Earn -

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.
