We have a job going at Rubber Republic for a digital account director – the type of digital guru who’s likely to hear about a job from the Twitterverse before a recruitment agency puts it on their radar. For this reason we’re offering 50 copies of the Cluetrain Manifesto to the first 50 UK people who RT (retweet) this tweet about the job (make sure you include #rubberjobby).

Please then remember to throw us over an address to send the book to either through DM (@rubber_republic) or email with proof of twitterance (we will name and shame anyone who tries to claim someone elses tweet ;)) Priority is given to those who tweet first AND send an address to pop the book over to.


Our smiles were superfluous when launching the Rubber Republic book club, so much so that we thought we’d expand it to the world of Twitter. There isn’t a more fitting way to spread a book about conversations (Cluetrain Manifesto) than to offer a copy to those who join in on one with us via Twitter.
