Well then read no further – that is NOT who we are looking for!
 
Catapult (www.catapultpr-ir.com) is an authentic, strategic and results-driven public and investor relations agency focused on exceeding its clients’ expectations every day. Located at the base of the Flatirons in Boulder, Colo. we believe strongly in the mantra of, “word hard – play hard.” We are a specialized, high-tech PR agency that cares not only about our clients, but our employees. That means we like to hire people who are just as passionate about their job and career as the companies we help change the world in which we live.
 
We are looking for the right person to join our team as an “account coordinator-PLUS.” This position will work closely with our senior director of client accounts and provide support to all account team members as necessary.
 
Our definition, requirements and specific duties for this position are a little different than most and include the following:
 
•    Learn: Be ready and willing to learn each and every day. We work in a fast-paced environment where constant learning of new information not only is necessary, it is expected. You will be asked to seek out information and conduct research and in turn share results in a clear and concise manner.

•    Client reporting: You will assist in managing and organizing client results and reports.

•    Work Hard: Our normal office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. – but what is normal? We are available to clients 24 X 7 X 365. And yes, we take calls from clients and fellow team members when needed at 3 a.m.!

•    Be Organized: You will need to be extremely organized and able to conduct research on client opportunities when necessary, organize client results, assist in preparing for client meetings and create presentations and documents as needed. PPT whiz skills a PLUS!

•    Pick up the phone!: Pitching editors, gathering editorial calendars or exploring story ideas are critical things we do each and every day to keep our clients front and center with the key influencers that matter most. It is important to be able to interact fluidly and easily with any type of reporter, and to uncover upcoming editorial opportunities to help us stay in front of important deadlines and get results for our clients.

•         Show Initiative: Go the extra mile. If we ask you to organize client results go a step beyond.
 
All this might sound like Catapult is all work and no play. Quite the contrary! We have breakfast together every Thursday, plan quarterly social outings and have great semi-annual events with our families. We believe in helping our employees grow and have fun doing it so they want to keep “Catapulting” with us through the years. In fact, our average employee tenure is six years! That’s pretty awesome. What’s even more fantastic is our client retention rate – many we have work with for more than seven years!
People like working with us for a reason.

Photojournalist
The Sheridan Wyoming Press
Sheridan, Wyoming

Job submitted on 10/25/2012

PHOTOJOURNALIST

The Sheridan, Wyoming, Press, an innovative and award-winning community daily newspaper in the best part of the state, has an opening for the position of photojournalist.

The successful candidate will have an appreciation and desire to accomplish what the Press does well — report local news. This means a daily diet of news events, sports, working with reporters on stories and also being sent around the town and county to get that one shot that says "wow!" and will be a contest entry. It also means taking photos that are rote and will likely end up on someone's refrigerator or family bible. Group shots. Photos of construction sites; citizens volunteering to enrich the city, its people and environs.

Once settled, we'll encourage our photojournalist to produce a weekly photo essay page(s) that illustrates why we're blessed to live in a community such as Sheridan. The successful photojournalist will have input to how his or her photos are displayed. We have made strides in becoming a more visual newspaper and want this to continue.

We believe that a photojournalist is like a vocalist in a jazz quartet. The photojournalist steps out as a part of the melody, and compliments not only the rhythm of its peers, the song and chorus of our content as well.

The Press is an independent newspaper with family and local ownership and with print and online news delivery platforms. Sheridan is a thriving community of 18,000 with a college, a lively arts/culture/music scene, a busy downtown and many other amenities, including unlimited outdoor recreational opportunities.

This entry-level position will test everything you’ve learned in college and challenge the opinions you’ve formed since then. You will demonstrate your strong work ethic and flexibility on a daily basis as you learn every nuance of all CIG clients. You will be held to an exceptionally high standard, but the habits you form in this position will benefit you as you move up in this organization and move forward with your promising career.

What We Expect Of You:
•    Dazzling Writing Skills

o    That’s right – the adjective “creative” doesn’t even come close. Not only will you show us samples of past work to demonstrate your mastery of various forms and styles (web copy, news releases, marketing and trade show materials, etc.), a writing test will be administered during the interview process. Finally, but in no way the least important, you’ll demonstrate your knowledge of and undying commitment to AP Style.

Beyond this informal mentoring, every CIG employee is mentored by CIG’s CEO and founder, who will push you to reach higher and achieve more than you think you can.

•    Variety
o    As anyone who has worked in an agency setting can attest, no two days are the same. You might arrive one morning intent on assembling news clippings but be asked to participate in a conference call to address a client’s media crisis. The point is, at CIG you’ll never get bored.

•    Fun
o    Everyone likes to say they have a fun corporate culture, but at CIG it’s true. We play hard because we work hard. Our team’s accomplishments are rewarded through team celebrations, casual outings and an annual retreat.
Job Duties
Responsibilities include:

•    GENERAL
o    Provide administrative and technical communication/marketing support
o    Demonstrate understanding of and adherence to basic ethical conduct
