There was another thread on the topic, but now I can't find it. One of our members should take that position!
Rupert?

I steered a friend with over 15 years' PR experience to this job - he's already gotten his resume in.

if I'm lucky, I might profit by his employee discount!

This ad is very promising. It shows that Pentax USA is beginning to awaken from it's deep sleep. I really hope that the person who wins this job has the skills, the budget and the support needed to do a bang up job and begin to position the brand for significant growth.

That depends on how much money Ricoh is willing to invest in the USA market. I bet its more than we will believe.

Another requirement should be included:
- Be able to work with your colleagues.
Chex, sorry, you failed.
I actually work very well with *most* of my colleagues... but I also would have some problems as a PR person I guess..
They say there are no stupid questions.. they are right, but there are stupid people asking questions. And I do doubt I could dumb down my cynicism enough for a PR job.

Too bad they are not looking for field reps. I give my gear a beating in hunting conditions and everyone keeps asking me what I shoot with. I have probably sold over 100 pentax cameras in the last year and a half lol. Rain sleet snow or shine I take the old K10 on every single hunting trip, duck or deer hunting. When my DA* is attached I have no problem getting it muddy or wet and people freak out. If the hunting hobby did not dominate the photo hobby I would have a K5 in a heart beat. But to not hijack the thread I could not do PR work. Here is a video I shot at the end of the season. You will see my camera haning in the tree.

My suggestion for the next pentax PR person:




Explanation: a smarter birdbrain than they have had in the past. They can do better.
