Assistant Account Executive – Advertising Agency
Before we begin... If you're truly interested in joining our agency that's awesome! But please (we'll even say pretty, please) don't just hit a button and forward your resume. To us that's not enough. We want to see a bit of your personality, what sets you apart and makes you unique or even a little bit about what you've accomplished in life that makes you (or, at least your mom) proud. So take the time to include a cover letter, a story, a blog post, a note from your mom... anything you feel shows us that yes, you're the right person for us.
Now here's a little bit about us...The official spiel is "we're a full-service advertising and digital agency". But what that doesn't tell you is that we're all individuals who are really passionate about providing our clients with fresh, but always business-smart, strategies and creative ideas. To us, it's always about doing work we're proud of, and work that keeps our clients continually delighted and never wanting to consider another shop. We're extremely team oriented, with no egos (OK, maybe some) where we all work together to always deliver what's best for our clients. We work hard, always put our clients first, but also know that in the end, we're not saving babies (except at times with our work with NYC, we can say we're saving babies). We're not about working ridiculous agency hours, but instead about working smart, helping each other out and doing it right the first time.
If this sounds good to you so far, read on about the actual job we're looking to fill...We are seeking a highly motivated, intelligent, bright and personable individual with 1-2 years of marketing or advertising experience for an Assistant Account Executive position.
