Mr. Nick Burry
Full Time
Northside Media Group (NMG) is looking for an Assistant to the Publisher. NMG publishes The L Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, and BAMbill, and produces events such as the Northside Festival and SummerScreen. The mission of NMG is to explore and champion emerging Brooklyn culture and style.

The Assistant to the Publisher position is a constantly-evolving role that encompasses a wide range of duties that help the ship sail smoothly. Because there are so many tasks and so many people asking for help, this position requires a special kind of candidate. Here are some of the qualities that we're looking for:

- Extreme organization. With multiple balls in the air at any time, an organization system is necessary to make sure none of them fall.
- Proactivity. The ability to learn to spot problems before they become serious.
- Positivity. Small office + lots of work = the need for positive team spirit
- Honesty, kindness, and bravery. These are important traits for everyone in our company.

The following are some of the duties you can expect (this is a sample, not a complete list):

- Managing the inputting and trafficking of ads in the print publications
- Managing and processing payments from clients
- General office management duties
- Assist the publisher with individual and ongoing tasks
- Help manage the magazine distribution process
- Assist with the production of events

The Assistant to the Publisher position is ideal for a recent college graduate looking for experience in media and/or publishing. Working on so many different facets of the business makes it both challenging and illuminating. It should be noted that this is not a writing position, but rather a business position within a creative office.
