ISO SENIOR MEDIA PRODIGY
Champion sailor, celebrated playwright, intrepid martial artist. If these things don’t describe you, it’s OK, they are not related to media.
Hunt Adkins is looking for a senior media planner or media supervisor to engage in all aspects of the field: strategy, planning, development, buying, execution, monitoring, optimization, reporting, billing and procuring free stuff to share with the office.
This unique individual resides at the intersection of efficiency and effectiveness, knows how to plan digital media but has experience in traditional media solutions, builds and manages campaigns that pour rocket fuel on engagement and traffic and employs effective reporting tools for continual optimization while remaining conscious of run-on sentences.
We’re looking for someone who is energized by a fast-paced environment; a multitasking wunderkind who can juggle numerous projects and deadlines with one hand and numerous chainsaws with the other. Someone who sees the forest and the trees and brings creative perspective to every media opportunity. Someone who is always on the lookout for opportunities to apply new digital technologies, products and services to online campaigns. Someone our media partners want to work extra hard for. Someone who continues to bring new ideas to the agency (and maybe bagels once in a while).
In summary, we’re looking for media supremacy. Oh, and someone with a minimum of 3 years of experience (preferably including an agency) who has worked with buying platforms and third-party ad serving. Should you desire to claim this esteemed role as your own, please contact email@example.com with MEDIA PLANNER as the subject.

Live vicariously through Joe as he documents his trials, tribulations and triumphs in real time. Gain insight. Find truth. Be inspired.
Account Executive wanted. But first a few words on cannibalism:
Ever wonder why certain giant ad agencies are always hiring? It’s not because they’re always growing. It’s because their employees are being used up. They take a little bit of your talent and sweat and soul at a time until one day there’s nothing left. It’s like in that movie when Chuck Heston screams, “Soylent Green is people!” They’re always hiring because they need to keep feeding the machine. Which brings us to our job: We’re looking for a strategic and a big-picture thinker. Must have budgetary and billing experience, be able to think on your feet about the needs of the client and team, confidently manage on your own, wield a metric ton of interactive experience and, most of all, want to work at a small agency where you can grow and prosper and not be turned into a wafer. If such happiness interests you contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Small-thinking designer wanted.
You are not interested in being a cog or a gear or a dual-mass flywheel in the faceless corporate machine of a giant ad agency. You have a love of color, composition and typography. You’ve mastered all the digital tools but trust your eye and instincts above all else. You want to apply your creativity to anything and everything: Digital, packaging, collateral, identity, print, television, lunar projections, puppetry. You have 2-5 years of experience—enough to know that you will not have your creativity ground into a coal-like substance to be shoveled into the furnace that powers the ambitions of the colossal agencies. You aspire to greater things, so you think small and you contact email@example.com.
