As a multimedia account executive, you are responsible for researching prospecting and attaining new clients daily for multi-media marketing and advertising, and creating multi-platform campaigns from start to finish. It's a fun job, but often times very stressful. I'd say about 75% of the job takes place on the road, cold-calling and knocking on doors. I loved the social aspect of working with The New Times-- there's always a tweet-up and happy hour and never a dull moment.
freedom to plan your day, great staff and sales team, great parties/events
demanding and stressful, too much driving, it's a tough sale.

I had direct feedback from the site's then editor, who advised what changes needed to be made to fit the site's writing style better and to fit the audience it was aimed toward. All feedback in a helpful, collaborative way.

It was a great place to work with a lot of great people, both talented and genuine, who were and still are a second family to me. I learned a great deal about leading by example, accountability and consistency.
Digital Marketing/Promotions Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 1, 2012
Every week I am at an event, promoting for the Village Voice. It is a joy to be a part of something so flexible and free, although I do sometimes crave the daily workings of a traditional workplace. The people I work with are people who will be in my life for a very long time, lasting friendships are made and my supervisor does her best to make sure that our work is comfortable, yet task-filling.
free events, networking, meeting people who will possibly be an asset in my future.
