Mediabistro is seeking a Corporate Training Business Development Associate to work with major media companies to develop seminars, course offerings, and training packages delivered in house and online. Like Janus the two-faced Roman god, this role requires one-half creative genius, one half scrappy sales shark.

The ideal candidate will have experience in content development within digital media and be a non-traditional sales person who can research leads, pitch products and services, wield a phone and gmail account like a sword, and close deals - all while maintaining Mediabistro's friendly brand.

Candidates should have experience in:
- Content development for a business audience
- Digital media, social media, and technology as topics that influence the way people work
- Continuing education course development
- Collaboration with subject-matter experts to create course offerings
- Entrepreneurial work environments
- Sales experience, including direct marketing, cold-calling, prospecting for clients

- Visionary ability to initiate ideas, solutions, and programs
- Enterprise sales experience
- Experience with online learning, web video, and community management
- 3-5 years of experience in related fields

- Stellar, outgoing personality
- Intense interest in media companies and the challenging business environment surrounding them
- Bachelor's degree
