The Mississippi Business Journal is seeking a qualified account executive to sell and service our print and digital advertising clients. You will be working with our existing accounts, as well as prospecting for new clients, and you must be comfortable on both personal and telephone presentations.
We’re seeking someone who has at least some experience in business-to-business sales. The right candidate will be a self-starter with good communications skills, strong drive and desire to succeed, and possess good creative skills. You’ll be selling a wide range of products, including print and digital advertising, sponsorships, native content, plaques and reprints, new products we’re developing, and more. The key to success is matching our products with clients’ needs, so we want someone who is a strong proponent of needs-based selling.
The position offers good earnings opportunities, with a draw against liberal commission, and offers good benefits. This is a rare opportunity to join Mississippi’s only statewide business publishing group, as this is the first sales opening we’ve had in the past 8 years.
If this interests you, email your resume with a cover letter telling us why you’re right for the job. Send this to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a copy to email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
BEFORE YOU GO…
… we’d like to ask for your support. More people are reading the Mississippi Business Journal than ever before, but advertising revenues for all conventional media are falling fast. Unlike many, we do not use a pay wall, because we want to continue providing Mississippi’s most comprehensive business news each and every day. But that takes time, money and hard work. We do it because it is important to us … and equally important to you, if you value the flow of trustworthy news and information which have always kept America strong and free for more than 200 years.
If those who read our content will help fund it, we can continue to bring you the very best in news and information. Please consider joining us as a valued member, or if you prefer, make a one-time contribution.Click for more info
