We were looking around on the net for remote social media jobs with a friend.
"Social Media Manager at 'Consumer Acquisition'". Yes, that was the name of the company.
A form appears with the usual stuff to fill out. Last question is "Do you have any questions?"
Us, unanimously: "Where do you store consumers after Acquisition?"
#smallstories with a tiny bit of adjustment for dramatic purposes
- "No, Consumer. The name of the company is Consumer Acquisition."
Apparently the word disturbed my brain. I kept humanizing it and my friend kept correcting me.
I went on filling the form for the Social Media Manager position.
| 1000 boxes of personal information later... |
I was almost done when the "Any further questions?" box popped up.
"Where do you store consumers after the Acquisition?".
I didn't get the job.
