A Twitter post leads to a job – Houston Chronicle

Will Flaherty found his first post-college job in the time-honored tradition of on-campus recruiting.

“They came to us,” said Flaherty, who went to work as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group after he graduated from Duke University. But as he worked on pricing strategies for a semiconductor manufacturer and business strategy for a Medicare provider, his mind wandered back to the college summers he spent as a media intern for the Houston Astros and Texans.

Then a Twitter post caught his attention. SeatGeek, a search engine for secondary market tickets for sports, concerts and other live events, was looking for a director of communications. (SeatGeek sells tickets on the Houston Chronicle website through a partnership with Hearst Corp.) Flaherty, a Houston native, had started following SeatGeek on Twitter after using it to buy tickets to the NCAA Final Four in Houston.
