WXRV/92.5 the River Account Executive

JOB DESCRIPTION:

The River is looking to expand its sales team. We’re growing and need 2 new Marketing Consultants to develop new business in the North Boston area. Candidates shouldn’t be annoying. We’re okay with “pleasantly persistent,” but annoying generally doesn’t work for us.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

It would help if you had outside sales experience, but we’re mostly looking for fun, outgoing and good-natured people that are curious, creative and caring (that’s alliteration for all you budding copywriters out there). 

REQUIREMENTS:

Check out our “media kit”, and if you think you’d be able to represent a brand like the River and develop marketing strategies for banks, car dealerships, colleges, restaurants, ski areas, etc. with crazy commercials like the one that may have led you to this rather vague but intriguing job description, than you should probably contact us and set-up some sort of formal interview where you can show us your resume and other things like that (yes, this was quite a run on sentence).

HOW TO APPLY:

We do have a great training program, benefits and a fantastic support group to help you succeed. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Send a cover letter and your resume to the dude that runs the place: Donald St. Sauveur at dstsauveur@wxrv.com.  Don’t bug him too much. He’s busy, but he will email you back. He promises.

You’ll act as a spokesperson and representative of 92.5 the River at promotional events including retail appearances and grand openings, concerts, Après-ski events and various station promotions like the Riverfront Music Festival in Newburyport  and RiverFeast at the Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury.

REQUIREMENTS:

If you have a flexible schedule, outgoing personality, and a clean driving record, and would like to develop an entry-level, part-time position within the fast-paced world of broadcasting and radio with WXRV/92.5 the River—Boston’s Independent Radio—then apply today!
