February 3, 2021, North Hollywood, CA – Now out of a job after stepping down as Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos is in the market for employment—and legal marketing leaders Hennessey Digital are looking to recruit the high-profile e-commerce magnate for their ranks in digital PR.
President and COO Scott Shrum expressed enthusiasm for hiring the former Amazonian #1: “While we don’t normally hire Princeton grads, Jeff’s extensive resume and infectious laugh make us think he would be a great fit here at Hennessey Digital. Provided that his references provide glowing recommendations, of course.”
Noting Hennessey Digital’s international employee base and 100%-virtual model, Shrum added, “We love remote work here, and we now have team members in 20 different states across the country, but it bothers us like hell that we don’t have anyone in the Pacific Northwest yet. We’d be proud to make Jeff our first hire from Washington State.”
In his farewell letter to Amazon employees, Bezos shared, “I find my work meaningful and fun. I get to work with the smartest, most talented, most ingenious teammates. When times have been good, you’ve been humble. When times have been tough, you’ve been strong and supportive, and we’ve made each other laugh. It is a joy to work on this team.” With Hennessey Digital’s culture of innovation, humility, and fun, it’s clear why Bezos is a natural fit for the agency.
CEO Jason Hennessey added, “I’d be honored if Mr. Bezos decided to come and work for Hennessey Digital as one of our link builders—err, digital PR team members. He’d fit in perfectly with our culture, and the link on his Wikipedia page would look way nicer if we changed it from amazon.com to hennessey.com.”
While Bezos couldn’t be reached for comment, Hennessey Digital is confident they’ll receive an acceptance for their offer of employment within the week and have already set up his email address for him.
