Our clients are hiring, and we help them find the right fit.
BBSI is currently accepting resumes for an Advertising Account Executive for permanent placement with a local ad/marketing agency in Idaho Falls, ID. This account rep must be a client-facing dynamo for assigned key accounts to build, enhance, grow their brands and most importantly, to help them wear their victory capes.
Our dream person has a wealth of confidence, a dearth of ego, a savant-like knowledge of Excel and the ability to juggle many balls at once. This elusive person also has an eye for detail and organization and a schemer’s outlook of what can be. This person is never afraid to ask “what if we…?” and roll up their sleeves and get to work. While able to keep hard deadlines, this person is not a classic 9 to 5-er and is always willing to work as late or as long as it takes to accomplish the task(s) at hand.
If you are an excellent written and verbal communicator, and able to deal with a wide variety of personalities, pressure and unique situations, then you might just be the one.
