Full Time
We are currently looking for an Account Executive with a minimum of three (3) years agency or marketing experience to manage and grow existing client accounts.

Here's what you need to work here:

Exceptional "can-do" mentality
It never ceases to happen. Clients are amazed at the amount of work we accomplish and the lengths to which we go to satisfy them. We instinctively do ANY and ALL things that are related to getting the job done. You must have that same inherent mindset.

A customer-focused approach
We are deeply involved in our clients' operations. In fact, Single Source has several clients that outsource their entire marketing function to us. As a result, you must be able to write marketing strategies and execute the accompanying tactics. It is an all-encompassing job. You must do critical thinking but also roll up your sleeves and get things done.

Solid writing and communication skills
You will often be called upon to concept and write copy for everything from websites to proposals, creative briefs to presentations decks and even ghostwrite memos for clients. Writing and communication skills must be concise and effective.

No fear
It is not uncommon for Single Source to be working on a project that is trying to marry together the needs of multiple departments from the same client. Often times each department's needs conflict with one another. As the Account Executive you need to have the courage and finesse to coordinate differing opinions and beliefs in order to keep a project on schedule. Easy to say, hard to do.

Things change in the ad biz. You know that. But knowing it and having to do it are two different things. We need someone who can turn on a dime should the task list change. If you can walk through walls too, give yourself five extra bonus points.

Everyone on our staff takes immense pride in our ability to juggle multiple projects and duties while delivering superior account service and measurable results to our clients. In other words, we work hard.

What Is It Like To Work Here?
Without question, the people that work here are all about doing the right thing, filled with passion and like beating out the competition by delivering solutions that get our clients results. It is a very flat organization where everyone pitches in to get the job done. We are extremely family-friendly and care about our employees.

Qualified applicants should send a cover letter, writing samples and a resume in PDF or Word format. No phone calls.
