We’re growing, and adding two more positions to support our 100+ authors. These folks would work on my team in the Author Services department. We just have one job description, but are hiring two people that will do similar stuff. If you’re interested, drop me a line.
Now, without further ado, the description:
The Author Services Account Executive (ASAE) at Federated Media works with the whole Author Services team, and the rest of the company, to take care of authors. This person will institute and follow a plan to make regular contact with FM authors, checking in with them on how we are proceeding, together, toward meeting their goals. An ASAE must have excellent communications skills, as a primary responsiblity will be to communicate instructions and requests to authors, and also serve as the author’s advocate within FM. Besides proactively contacting authors, the ASAE will also respond to requests from authors — for information, technical help, advice, etc.
This person will also help search for new authors for this growing company, and respond to queries from prospective authors.
The ideal candidate needs to be organized and have an eye for talent. He or she should be able to cope with a rapidly changing amount of data from various sources. A passion for the world of blogs — in particular for the world of search, media, and technology — is required. The ability to work comfortably with a wide variety of personalities is a must. Editorial experience is critical. An understanding of the publishing and advertising worlds and a knowledge of general business operations are both important. Meticulous accuracy and attention to detail is essential, as is the ability to work on numerous projects simultaneously and under tight deadlines.
