Account Executive/Senior Account Executive
Development Counsellors International
Denver, CO


Location: Denver, CO
Industry: Agency
Job Level: Mid


Development Counsellors International (DCI) is the Leader in Marketing Places. Since 1960, we've worked exclusively with more than 400 economic development and tourism organizations in cities, states, regions and countries, helping them to attract jobs and tourists.

By marketing our client's stories and assets, we help spur prosperity and growth in their communities. And in a time of soaring unemployment and economic uncertainty, we believe that what we do matters. Each year, the economic development organizations we work for help create and retain thousands of jobs by bringing investment to their communities.

Working with places, as opposed to products or companies, provides a challenging and varied experience--one day you're writing a pitch about a community's medical research expertise to the Wall Street Journal, while another day you may be working with TechCrunch on an emerging technology trend.
If you're looking for an educational and challenging environment that has a big impact, we'd love to hear from you.

We are looking for an Account Executive or Senior Account Executive with at least three to five years of PR, communications, journalism or marketing experience for our economic development division in our Denver office.

Your friends and colleagues might describe you as a news junkie, because you always know what's happening and which stories are making headlines. You might be a journalist who loves the media, but is looking for a new challenge and a way to put your skills and interests to work.  Or perhaps you've worked in marketing or public relations for the past several years, and you're looking to make a difference by promoting something unique.

Regardless, you're an extremely strong writer with sound news judgment. Your eye for detail could have made you an editor, and you love the challenge of having to become knowledgeable on a topic overnight.

Primary Responsibilities:
 *Support the PR & marketing campaigns of each community through research and brainstorming;
 *Pitch national media and trade outlets on storylines crossing multiple industries;
 *Contribute to client digital and social media marketing efforts;
 *Report on and track the progress of PR & marketing campaigns;
 *Monitor the news from 4-6 client regions on a daily basis;
 *If not already knowledgeable about the industry, quickly learn about the field of economic development.

Qualifications:
 *MUST be an extremely strong writer and communicator;
*Demonstrated ability to craft and place a "newsworthy" pitch; placements in national media outlets a strong plus.
 *Experience in developing online campaigns using all forms of social media;
 *A strong interest in places and business marketing;
 *A degree in public relations, English, marketing or journalism is strongly preferred;
 *A goal-oriented, "can do" attitude and creative problem-solving abilities;
 *A self-starter who is independently-motivated and has the discipline to meet deadlines;
 *Must have prior PR agency or newsroom experience or have worked with a chamber of commerce or economic development organization in a marketing capacity.

DCI Offers:
 *Competitive salary, with incentive program after one year
 *Unique "open book" management system
 *Flexible start times and summer hours program
 *Health/dental coverage and 401-K plan
 *Positive work environment that values both teamwork and individual growth
 *Strong opportunities for professional advancement

Salary:  $30-40K|$31K-$33K

Job Opening Date:  08/03/2011
Application Deadline:  09/03/2011

Interested candidates can send their resumes and any writing samples to Erin Bodine at erin.bodine@aboutdci.com with "AE/SAE Position" in the subject line. Please also include a cover letter explaining your "passion for places." No phone calls please. More info at www.aboutdci.com.

Job Level: Entry

Company Description:

Development Counsellors International (DCI) is the Leader in Marketing Places. Since 1960, we've worked exclusively with more than 400 economic development and tourism organizations in cities, states, regions and countries, helping them to attract jobs and tourists.

By marketing our client's stories and assets, we help spur prosperity and growth in their communities. And in a time of soaring unemployment and economic uncertainty, we believe that what we do matters. Each year, the economic development organizations we work for help create and retain thousands of jobs by bringing investment to their communities.

Working with places, as opposed to products or companies, provides a challenging and varied experience--one day you're writing a pitch about a community's medical research expertise to the Wall Street Journal, while another day you may be working with TechCrunch on an emerging technology trend.

If you're looking for an educational and challenging environment that has a big impact, we'd love to hear from you.

DCI Offers
*Competitive salary, with incentive program after one year
*Unique "open book" management system
*Flexible start times and summer hours program
*Health/dental coverage and 401-K plan
*Positive work environment that values both teamwork and individual growth
*Strong opportunities for professional advancement

Job Description:
We are looking for a Senior Account Executive with at least three to five years of PR, communications, journalism or marketing experience for our economic development division in our Denver office.

Your friends and colleagues might describe you as a news junkie, because you always know what's happening and which stories are making headlines. You might be a journalist who loves the media, but is looking for a new challenge and a way to put your skills and interests to work. Or perhaps you've worked in marketing or public relations for the past several years, and you're looking to make a difference by promoting something unique. Regardless, you're an extremely strong writer with sound news judgment. Your eye for detail could have made you an editor, and you love the challenge of having to become knowledgeable on a topic overnight.

Primary Responsibilities
*Support the PR & marketing campaigns of each community through research and brainstorming;
*Pitch national media and trade outlets on storylines crossing multiple industries;
*Contribute to client digital and social media marketing efforts;
*Report on and track the progress of PR & marketing campaigns;
*Monitor the news from 4-6 client regions on a daily basis;
*If not already knowledgeable about the industry, quickly learn about the field of economic development.

Job Qualifications:
*MUST be an extremely strong writer and communicator;
*Demonstrated ability to craft and place a "newsworthy" pitch; placements in national media outlets a strong plus.
*Experience in developing online campaigns using all forms of social media;
*A strong interest in places and business marketing;
*A degree in public relations, English, marketing or journalism is strongly preferred;
*A goal-oriented, "can do" attitude and creative problem-solving abilities;
*A self-starter who is independently-motivated and has the discipline to meet deadlines;
*Must have prior PR agency or newsroom experience or have worked with a chamber of commerce or economic development organization in a marketing capacity.

Salary: $30-40K

Opening Date: 09/13/2011
Application Deadline: 10/03/2011

How to Apply:
Interested candidates can send their resumes and any writing samples to Erin Bodine at erin.bodine@aboutdci.com with "AE/SAE Position" in the subject line. Please also include a cover letter explaining your "passion for places." No phone calls please. More info at www.aboutdci.com.
