Crowdsourcing helps Best Buy rewrite job description

The Associated Press checks in with Best Buy today on its effort to crowdsource a job description for an emerging media marketing position.

The retailer’s request for help writing the job description generated thousands of hits and hundreds of comments. Only 18 people sent suggestions via an online suggestion box.

Among the suggestions: Ask applicants to explain their qualifications in a tweet-length 140 characters or less.

The rewritten job description is expected to be posted on Best Buy’s career website in several weeks, a spokeswoman tells the AP.
