We are a fast-paced multi-platform media company seeking account executives to engage with a large roster of clients to guide them through the advertising process. The role includes finding and nurturing client relationships, managing a large number of accounts of local, independent businesses and service providers while helping to develop clients’ brands and voices with creative marketing plans.
A bit about you:
You are passionate about the Washtenaw County economy. You shop local, support local, and want a job that helps you promote local businesses. You are an enthusiastic, ambitious and organized multitasker with a passion for completing projects and building brands.
You are a self-assured people person— you have the confidence to understand when “no” means “no,” and when “no” means “maybe later.” You are comfortable cold calling, but also right at home at a scheduled meeting. You have the ability to improvise, but you are a strategic thinker who appreciates a well-organized action plan that gets results.
You’re detail-oriented, but your first priority is always “the big picture.” You know what questions to ask and you know how to listen (people just feel comfortable talking to you, it’s weird like that). You’re a hyper-focused extrovert who knows how to identify how, when and why people want what they want.
You’re friendly, but know how to lay down the law. You are an energetic cheerleader for your clients— you take their trust seriously and will aggressively defend their interests. Their success is your success, and you don’t let anyone get in your way. You’re the reason why we can afford to give our readers content for free and we’re so excited to meet you.
A bit about us:
We create monthly print and continuous online platforms for area residents to explore new businesses/services, experience the best in arts and entertainment, and discover ways to participate in the community. We love Washtenaw County, thrive under pressure, and are constantly on the lookout for "the next big thing." We are social and creative creatures with identifiable passions and a proven track record of pursuing them. We are collaborative, enthusiastic and passionate, but also well-organized. We take ourselves seriously while also recognizing that, at times, things aren’t very serious. We worship deadlines and work with a sense of urgency. (Our work ethic is borderline pathological). We are resourceful, proud of what we do and aren’t afraid to ask for help when we need it (because, at times, we do).
Send us your resume or email showing your interest and let’s move this forward. There are so many of our clients waiting to meet you.
