Talent quest at RMIT

A learned reader advises RMIT has an “employer branding manager,” perhaps Ziggy and Martin left when they heard

Just now the EBM is emailing people around the traps suggesting they apply to become vice chancellor research fellows, “the most prestigious research positions within RMIT.”

“We’re looking for not just the best and brightest researchers, but those who also want to have an impact,” the branding manager writes.

So, on what basis are people being approached – after reading their research, checking their H-index, asking RMIT scholars for recommendations? Not that the EBM mentions, “your Linkedin profile suggests you might be a great candidate,” the branding manager writes.  At least it isn’t a dating app.
