Are you interested in learning a community-oriented approach to marketing and understanding social selling? TheCR is thrilled to announce an opening for a Sales/Marketing Fellow in 2015.
What’s a Fellow?
The Community Roundtable has hired a number of fellows over the years because it is a unique opportunity for both an individual, TheCR and TheCR’s ecosystem to benefit. Our fellowships are intended to last 6-12 months and give individuals a strong background and network with which to find a permanent research or analyst position – you can read more about this program here.
What you will learn:
- How to creating pull marketing and sales programming – collaborating with prospects and clients to create something together
- What it means to be a generative business (one that generates more value for every segment of a company’s ecosystem than it takes out)
- How to work with a fast-paced, transparent and collaborative team that has a bias for action and as little overhead as possible
- How a community management approach to business transforms work into a series of fluid, meaningful collaborations with a network of individuals that build value
You might be our next sales/marketing fellow if you:
- Love people and have experience with social technologies and online communities
- Care about your work and the people with whom you work
- Bring your best effort to every project but can leave your ego at the door
- Get excited about content creation – in lots of different formats
- Love communicating with people through writing and social media
- Are organized, self-driven and have strong project management skills
- Enjoy the flexibility – and responsibility – of working from home
- Have a great sense of humor and want to work as part of a small, driven team
- Are a good copy-editor and like to ensure communications are professional
- Help TheCR team and our ecosystem to demonstrate the value of community and community management
- Building content that effectively triggers learning or action – must be comfortable with WordPress and PowerPoint, graphic and video skills are a bonus, as is light website coding.
- CRM maintenance and analysis – experience with Salesforce is a plus, but not a must
- Relationship development and sales outreach – you’ll be in the trenches with our sales team generating, managing and nurturing conversations
- Special projects which, depending on your skill set and interests, could be related to research, content, business development, marketing, or events
You might be the ideal candidate if:
You are detail-oriented, recognize the value of community management, and want to help us shout it from the rooftops.
Why a fellowship and not a permanent hire?
As a small organization there are large risks for someone in deciding to work with us and there are risks for us in making a permanent hire. By providing training, access to market leaders, and a stipend to a fellow, we can ensure that she or he is very well positioned to find a great gig with a larger organization at the end of the fellowship. To us, this creates a win-win-win for potential candidates, employers, and for us. It also serves our mission by enabling us to develop trained, experienced professionals for the market. But we liked our last two fellows so much we hired them both into permanent roles, which is also a potential outcome of the fellowship.
Do you have what it takes? Are you excited by what we could do together? Please tell us more about you! While not a requirement for the right candidate, preference will be given to people within commuting distance from Boston.
