LinkedIn users with the right stuff could soon be working for Kanye West because it would seem recruiting for the star’s upcoming fashion business is being done through the site. Over the past week ads have been popping up on LinkedIn from Decision Toolbox. These ads have been offering the chance to apply for the post of either Chief Financial Officer or VP for Production at Kanye’s new company.
The ads sell the roles in the business by making it clear that it is not just Kanye’s name attached to the business but his artistic influence. Often when a famous person releases a clothing line it is actually designed by professionals and merely bears the stars name.
Initial reaction had many people thinking that the job ads could not be real but Decision Toolbox say they are 100% legit. The main man behind the business end of the company appears to be Richard Dent III, former COO of Victoria’s Secret. He is the current Chief Executive of Astor & Black, which does raise the question as to whether A&B are designing Kanye’s line or if he really is producing the whole thing himself.
