We’re in the midst of a recruiting search for a marketing associate. What we’re looking for is someone with graphic design skills, online writing skills, and a great attitude about learning B2B marketing.
The challenge is selecting an appropriate level. We’re not looking for design talent – we have that and can outsource it and to be honest, you’d be bored working on one brand. Knowing how Photoshop and Illustrator work helps us not outsource production work. We like that.
Knowing how to write is important – not essays, but short, interesting online content for the website, the blog, and internal promotions. That’s not a skill that can be taught. It has to be earned and enjoyed. If you know how to do it, you’ll know what we mean.
Mostly we want someone who will work hard. Someone who wants to learn . Someone who respects their company and is respected by their company. That’s usually the hardest to find because it’s not on the resume.
Is that you?
