Job Requirements The Lavin Agency is one of the world's most respected intellectual talent agencies. We represent business leaders, scientists, designers, and authors for speaking engagements.

We have grown every year since our inception, in 1989, and are now hiring agents for our US corporate market. We're looking for a self-starter who will thrive at a small and very progressive company. You are a brilliant and persuasive communicator, on the phone and in email. You are engaged and engaging. You are a voracious reader. You love business and culture equally. You are attuned to the social and political zeitgeist. And you have the intellect to understand and sell intangibles.

The job is hard, but it's also fun and meaningful work. You need to able to cold-call, to prospect, to maintain and grow a client base, to guide a sale from beginning to end, to manage expectations, to meet quotas, and to speak--with clarity, purpose and verve--about our roster of world famous speakers.

This current position begins with a six-month training period, in which you will find prospects, new clients, and new conferences and events. All the while, you'll be learning about our speakers, and immersing yourself in the business end of speakers bureaus.

Please take a few moments to visit our website. And please check out this short video from our president, explaining what he looks for when hiring new employees. Then, send us a boring resume as well as an ORIGINAL and fascinating cover letter that highlights your fiercely competitive streak, many successes, and quick wit and imagination. Please do not send in your typical cover letter; we need one that expresses, exactly, why you feel you are a perfect fit for The Lavin Agency specifically. In your cover letter, please also tell us, toward the end, the name of one person who you feel is underrated, and why.

$40-90k + benefits

No calls or visits please; only emails will be accepted.
