Special Assignment

SORRY THIS POSITION IS NOW FILLED!

We are looking for a Marketing Assistant. We've filled this position before and the results were fantastic. Believe it or not, the successful applicant last round was not a marketing grad or professional! So why was she so good? Attitude, research ability, experimentation with results tracking, and a knack for social media.
The marketing assistant will take on much more than social media updates... because marketing involves much more than Facebook! There's onsite marketing, marketing regionally, marketing in-room, at the front desk, at the front doors, AND online! Then there's info gathering...
We have many new projects to unfold this year, and we're looking for an ambitious, fun loving extrovert who can handle random tasks and maintain focus on long term objectives. Interested? Email Matt a short bio, resume and answer the following: what does marketing mean to you and why are you drawn to it? If you have examples of successes and failures (yours or others) that you've found interesting, please share! If you know someone that MUST apply share the link!
