POSITION: Account Executive (Media Ad Sales)
DUTIES: You’ll be selling local advertising for our innovative radio stations and digital platforms. You’ll work with area businesses to help them grow using our four local radio brands through six great local radio signals and hyperlocal news website. Using modern sales support systems, you’ll also be responsible for sales order entry, coordination of ad production, accurate forecasting, timely reporting, and achievement of sales goals. (If you have an interested and potentially qualified friend, please have them reach out to us, too.)
QUALIFICATIONS: The ideal candidate should have successful media ad sales experience, a competitive personality, and a winning attitude; be a quick learner and a natural problem-solver; enjoy relationship-building and a fast pace; have excellent prospecting skills; project a professional appearance and demeanor; be an organized self-starter able to work effectively without direct supervision; and be excited about an opportunity to work for a company that’s investing big time in making a difference. Although a lifetime of sales experience is not required, strong written and verbal communications skills are critical, and a college degree is preferred but not mandatory.
LOCATIONS: Key positions are based in the Sylacauga-Childersburg and Lake Martin-Alexander City areas with responsibilities extending into Birmingham, Auburn, and Montgomery.
