Do you think Retroviral should invite me round for an interview?

14 Feb

My name is Kirsty Sharman (@KirstyCarrot)… and I would like to be an Online Community Manager for Retroviral (they’re hiring).  Why you ask? Because I heart Digital (I even spell it with a capital D because I feel it’s important enough to be a noun), Retroviral released a video a while ago that gave me goose bumps… it made me Stop, drop and re-consider my path… If you haven’t seen it, watch it, it’s LEGEND! Watch it Here

Below are 12 reasons why I think Mike Sharman (the Boss man at @retroviral) should hire me. If you think I deserve an interview, PLEASE tweet this post and REMEMBER to use the  #WeWantKirsty hashtag!


  • I have a tertiary Degree. Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Design (it’s a requirement folks).
  • I have Lady Balls. One time I even kissed a horse whilst wearing intimidating sunglasses… Don’t believe me?

  • I’m not afraid to ask questions. I’m not going to tell you I know everything because that would make me a liar, and no one likes a liar, but I am going to tell you that what I don’t know I will learn… and I will learn it FAST.
  • An existing online presence. My Comic Web-Blog (Lunch Money Mafia) has built a small community over time… and I have made me a few twitter BFF’s. If you times my amount of followers by 34 388 then I’m basically as popular as Justin Bieber online.
  • I’m passionate about all things digital. No jokes there, I laugh in the face of paper.
  • I’m a team player, and I’m confident I can bring new ideas to the table. After all, people always tell me that two minds are better than one… I have done a little comic to help explain my logic here.


  • I can like to work the interwebs. Twitter, Facebook, Tweetdeck, Stumble, Linkedin, Google+, Google Analytics, Tumblr, WordPress (my favorite blogging platform), Blogger, YouTube, HTML, CSS… and the Adobe creative suit is my playground!
  • I can write #LikeABoss. If you ignore the whole “I can like to work the interwebs” line.
  • I always go the extra mile. When they tell me to come to work dressed as a Chav, I don’t only go dressed as a chav… I bring my Chav baby with me to work too. Cause them Pom government folk don’t pay for no baby sitters innit?…am i Bovered?


  • I have those interpersonal skills you’re looking for. I learnt those social skills pretty QUICK when I discovered I was the reason the saying “white people can’t dance” actually exists… I had to make friends somehow!
  • I think Retroviral is the SH*T. The work I’ve seen them do MATTERS. I WANT TO MATTER.

(***Please NOTE, even though we share the same surname, there is no relation)

Think I deserve that interview? Then let it be heard! Tweet, Tweet and Tweet some more my little chinchilla’s!! And remember to use #WeWantKirsty so I can track 😉

    I can tell you from first hand experience that nepotism is the secret to success. Nepotism is the new black.
